Abstract:

The Intelligence Analysts Associate IAA is a new approach to processing incoming intelligence data that maintains the data as purely as possible, yet allows it to be presented to the analyst in a variety of ways that allow himher to recognize patterns and relationships. Using this approach IAA transforms incoming textual data into a form that can be displayed as pictures, a presentational format that allows rapid identification of patterns in the data. The IAA consists of three segments the Natural Language Processing Segment NLPS, the Event Data Base EDB and the Graphics Display Segment GDS . This document will address the operation of and user interaction with the Graphic Display Segment of the IAA system. Currently, the GDS operates as a single-user system hosted on an IBM PCAT with Professional ORACLE as the data base management system with a limited event data base. The data base contains information regarding activities in Afghanistan and the map data available to the GDS is the area immediately surrounding Afghanistan. The IAA is primarily intended to support the application of empirical methods for developing cybernetic models of military operations.
