Counterdeception principles and applications for national security by Michael Bennett( Book )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 91 libraries worldwide
Today, more than ever, the use of denial and deception (D & D) is being used to compensate for an opponent?s military superiority, to obtain or develop weapons of mass destruction, and to violate international agreements and sanctions. Although the historical literature on the use of strategic deception is widely available, technical coverage of the subject is scattered in hard-to-find and out-of-print sources. This is the first technical volume to offer a current, comprehensive and systematic overview of the concepts and methods that underlie strategic deception and, more importantly, to provid
Multisensor fusion by A. K Hyder( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
For some time, all branches of the military have used a wide range of sensors to provide data for many purposes, including surveillance, reconnoitring, target detection and battle damage assessment. Many nations have also attempted to utilise these sensors for civilian applications, such as crop monitoring, agricultural disease tracking, environmental diagnostics, cartography, ocean temperature profiling, urban planning, and the characterisation of the Ozone Hole above Antarctica. The recent convergence of several important technologies has made possible new, advanced, high performance, sensor based applications relying on the near-simultaneous fusion of data from an ensemble of different types of sensors. The book examines the underlying principles of sensor operation and data fusion, the techniques and technologies that enable the process, including the operation of 'fusion engines'. Fundamental theory and the enabling technologies of data fusion are presented in a systematic and accessible manner. Applications are discussed in the areas of medicine, meteorology, BDA and targeting, transportation, cartography, the environment, agriculture, and manufacturing and process control
Quantitative intelligence analysis : applied analytic models, simulations and games by Edward Waltz( Book )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 54 libraries worldwide
This book describes the model-based method of intelligence analysis that represents the analyst's mental models of a subject, as well as the analyst's reasoning process exposing what the analyst believes about the subject, and how they arrived at those beliefs and converged on analytic judgments. It includes: methods of explicitly representing the analyst's mental models as computational models; dynamic simulations and interactive analytic games; the structure of an analyst's mental model and the theoretical basis for capturing and representing the tacit knowledge of these models explicitly as computational models detailed description of the use of these models in rigorous, structured analysis of difficult targets; model illustrations and simulation descriptions; role of models in support of collection and operations; case studies that illustrate a wide range of intelligence problems; recommended curriculum for technical analysts. --

Information Operations: Creating New Frontiers for Data Fusion and Mining Technology ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The recent developments in the definition of doctrine for information operations and the implementation of systems to enable the conduct of those operations pose new challenges to the application of data fusion and data mining technologies. This paper describes the basic reasoning processes underlying both data fusion and data mining, and discusses the critical role of these processes to enable the development of increasingly complex information operations (IO). The development of IO, this paper asserts, has opened three challenging frontiers of development that must be addressed by data fusion and mining developers. These frontiers include: (1) The need to apply the processes beyond the physical domain, to encompass the symbolic and cognitive domains of reality, (2) The need to extend the processes to deal with subjective and qualitative data, and (3) The need to develop collaborative fusion and mining processes that collaborate with human teams to solve complex problems

Whole-of-Government Planning and Wargaming of Complex International Operations: Experimental Evaluation of Methods and Tools ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
We describe the experimental methodology developed and employed in a series of experiments within the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Conflict Modeling, Planning, and Outcomes Exploration (COMPOEX) Program. The primary purpose of the effort was the development of tools and methods for analysis, planning, and predictive assessment of plans for complex operations where integrated political- military-economic-social-infrastructure and information (PMESII) considerations play decisive roles. As part of the program, our team executed several broad-based experiments, involving dozens of experts from several agencies simultaneously. The methodology evolved from one experiment to another because of the lessons learned. The paper presents the motivation, objectives, and structure of this interagency experiment series; the methods we explored in the experiments; and the results, lessons learned, and recommendations for future efforts of such nature

Revisiting the JDL Data Fusion Model II ( file )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This paper suggests refinements and extensions of the JDL Data Fusion Model, the standard process model used for a multiplicity of community purposes. However, this Model has not been reviewed in accordance with (a) the dynamics of world events and (b) the changes, discoveries, and new methods in both the data fusion research and development community and related IT technologies. This paper suggests ways to revise and extend this important model. Proposals are made regarding (a) improvements in the understanding of internal processing within a fusion node and (b) extending the model to include (1) remarks on issues related to quality control, reliability, and consistency in DF processing, (2) assertions about the need for co-processing of abductive/ inductive and deductive inferencing processes, (3) remarks about the need for and exploitation of an onto logically-based approach to DF process design, and (4) extensions to account for the case of Distributed Data Fusion (DDF)
Data Fusion in Offensive and Defensive Information Operations ( file )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The conduct of offensive and defensive Information Operations (IO) require coordinated targeting and protection, respectively, across physical, information and even cognitive domains. Even the specific IO activities of Computer Network Defense (CND) and Computer Network Attack (CNA) require the close coordination of activities across all three domains to encompass physical processing assets, information creation, flows and stores, and the cognitive behaviors of human network administrators and operators. This paper describes the role of data fusion to provide intelligence for IO and to conduct both offensive operations (OIO) and defensive operations (DIO). We build on prior papers that have introduced the concept of a three-domain model of IO targets, and the general application of data fusion to the more abstract functions of IO. These functions require the fusion of both quantitative and qualitative data (e.g. numerical and text data, respectively) to develop models of physical, symbolic and cognitive IO targets and situations. This paper describes conceptual implementations of data fusion structures to model and understand OIO and DIO targets within the domains of reality
Urban Sunrise ( file )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This report describes the research performed to explore the potential to enhance military urban operations, planning and execution, by providing new civil intelligence preparation-analysis and Effects Based Operations (EBO) planning capabilities to the urban warfighters and occupying civil administrations. The objective is to provide a comprehensive capability for construction of urban civil intelligence for dynamic effects-based operations analysts to coordinate administrative, information, and military security operations for greatest effects. A three-domain" urban model was developed to model human organizational behavior (cognitive domain), information paths and structures (information domain), and the physical infrastructure of the urban area of interest (physical domain). This effort was a "seedling" effort to conduct the basic research and develop the theory. A follow-on effort by the Army will develop the static description and dynamic simulation of the three urban domains, providing visualization and explanation facilities to allow analysts and planners to explore the consequences of effects based administrative, security and information operations
Situation Analysis and Collaborative Planning for Complex Operations ( file )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Complex operations are conducted in environments that must be represented by large-scale systems of systems that include non-physical systems (e.g. political and social networks, economics, information flows) intertwined with physical systems (e.g. infrastructures, military systems, etc.) that are adaptive and exhibit emergent (unexpected) behavior. Planning for such systems requires adaptive and robust approaches that are based in a comprehensive study of both the structure and the dynamics of these systems. This paper describes analysis and planning tools developed and evaluated in the DARPA Conflict Modeling, Planning and Outcomes Exploration (COMPOEX) Program for complex operations. The tools enable systems of systems analysts to compose conceptual, then computational models of regional and nation-level situations to explore the behavior of their interacting systems. The flexible simulation architecture allows agent-based models, systems dynamics models, Bayesian networks, linear program models, and other discrete-time models to be composed into an integrated political-military-economic-social-infrastructure and information (PMESII) simulation. The paper describes the concept of operations, the analysis and planning tools, and provides the results of normal experiments conducted with operational interagency teams on planning exercises using PMESII models across a range of lines of effort
