Abstract:

The Framework for Analytic Cognition FAC is designed to provide an end-to-end guide for doing intelligence analysis that is systematic, yet flexible enough to accommodate the unstructured and highly iterative nature of the work. FAC focuses on aiding the analyst in developing a thorough, deep understanding of both capabilities and intentions as shaped by human decision and actions for their subject of study. FAC leverages existing knowledge relevant to intelligence analysis from potentially applicable scientific and professional subject areas. Systematic review of the literature continued during development and evaluation of the FAC. FAC incorporates new knowledge and work aids based on both the literature and the domain expertise of the investigators.
