MYMIC proposes a new capability, an ethnographic engine called RAVEn (Rapid Assessment and Visualization for Ethnography) that will support planners at the operational and tactical level. RAVEn will be a knowledge management capability that will generate a high level of ethnographic situational awareness. RAVEn will provide the planner with a clear categorization scheme for the collection and visualization of available ethnographic data using the PMESII construct while identifying knowledge gaps and accelerating the collection process of new ethnographic information.
