Abstract
"There are human assets with the potential to produce focused information in every area of interest to the intelligence and other communities. The current communication technologies stand ready to provide the backbone upon which ad-hoc, human intelligencenetworks can be built. The challenge is to produce an implementation that does not introduce new infrastructure and allows "lay" members to utilize only their current wireless devices and methods.ASEG is confident that by building on the vision of fuselets and habitats developed at DARPA and AFRL, a communication interface based on a component repository can address this challenge. By composing dynamically executable software that isre-configurable "on the fly" according to target's communication interfaces, and seeding it with the content of an analyst's intelligence requests, a server-side solution promoting maximum "lay" participation can be achieved.This capability will be readily embraced by many sectors: the marketing agencies to advertise promotions, the polling agencies to solicit spontaneous feedback on issues, law enforcement agencies to solve crimes and issue advisories, private industry topromote productivity without the major expense of private networks. This technology will enable public and private sectors to realize the goal of "communicating with anybody, any time, over any device." The INET communication capability will be readily embraced by many sectors includin
