Grant Description

The Naval Postgraduate School Center for Multi-INT Studies (CMIS) has a bold vision to transform the field of intelligence and seeks to vastly improve the current state of the art in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR). To this end, CMIS supports innovative, independent research that has the potential to expand knowledge in related areas. As real-time, accurate and actionable intelligence products are demanded by analysts, warfighters, and decision makers, linear, human-intensive processes are no longer sufficient. The capabilities of current and future adversaries, and the dynamism and complexity of the environments in which they operate, necessitate vast improvements in the timeliness and execution of intelligence-cycle processes. Humans do not have the cognitive ability or the time to analyze the vast quantities of multi-source, multi-dimensional data that are now available. Revolutionary decision support, situational awareness, sensemaking, inferencing, reasoning, and visualization capabilities must be employed to expediently unlock the information contained in these myriad streams of data. CMIS envisions a future where cognitive technologies can anticipate strategic and tactical information needs, perceptively orchestrate distributed sensors across every domain (cyber, human, terrestrial, air, sea, space, etc.), and deliver timely and accurate recommendations to kinetic and/or non-kinetic agents (human and/or machine) to employ required actions. This future of intelligence collection and analysis is realized as a highly automated loop with five functions: 1) information about a target is automatically synthesized from large stores of Multi-INT data, 2) a model of target behaviors uses this information as evidentiary support of hypothesized activities, 3) information value calculations determine what next information to obtain, and 4) efficient algorithms orchestrate the employment of a diverse set of sensors to collect information that produces increased information and intelligence value, 5) analysts and decision-makers are informed by the automated loop and the automated loop receives information and guidance from the analysts and decision-makers.
