The state of the art in data processing systems for tactical military intelligence is storage and retrieval. The report is directed at creating a system for higher-level man-machine inference. This broad objective results in a dilemma because of the difficulty in making it a well posed problem. An heuristical method the Eight-and-a-Half-Fold Way for attacking this dilemma by means of seven overlapping interdisciplinary models and dichotomous systems policy pairings is disclosed. Consideration of the models leads to A robust basis for introducing a priori intelligence, and information theory measure of performance for system control, and a flow-chart design. The design reflects the Blue-Red interactive coupling of warfare and is directed at exposing the military risk caused by intelligence production by comparing Game Theoretic and Bayesian style inferences. The report stresses heuristic chronology rather than system description and justification. Some insights on heuristics creativity in system engineering are described and justified.
