This report presents the work of the Stanford Research Institute SRI Counterinsurgency Surveillance Analysis Project. It forms the basis for our detailed description of insurgent stockpiling operations in south Thailand and therefore for our subsequent studies of the means of detecting such operations. It starts with descriptions of the main political and military conditions that tend to bound, or predetermine, the conflict process in south Thailand and proceeds to our estimates of the current situation. It concludes with outlines of three hypothetical conflict situations that might possibly emerge in the relatively near future and which seem to us to merit more detailed analysis. The material presented herein is intended to provide the basis from which, and the context within which, further and more detailed analyses will proceed.
