Abstract

The objective for this SBIR is to develop a PMESII-PT workbench i.e., a tool that will enable Civil Affairs staff to gather, organize, and maintain knowledge relevant to stability operations. Two factors limit the military s ability to manage stability operations. First, there simply are not enough trained personnel for the mission. As a result, soldiers not trained in stability operations often take up the CA role. Secondly, too few people understand the importance of 2nd and 3rd order effects on a population in asymmetric warfare. This Phase II program will focus on developing a workbench that uses an OODA loop framework for capturing and organizing knowledge.
