Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-076
Budget: 03/21/07 - 09/01/08

We will create technology to (1) develop behavior operators and actor models that describe the capacities and tendencies of actors, (2) express these as friendly or adversary COAs, (3) exercise a simulation infrastructure to develop projected behavior under various conditions, (4) employ normative analysis to guide all stages in the life cycle o...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-076
Budget: 04/10/06 - 04/10/07

Our objective is to create the technology foundation to anticipate and thwart adversary planning and action, by creating valid models of adversary capacities and tendencies, and delivering these models in the form of (adversary) planning operators. We will emphasize rapid development of plausible, high-impact adversary plans (as a function of th...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-111
Budget: 04/26/05 - 04/26/07

We will create a foundation for designing and managing Decisive Interventions a simulation-based adjunct to planning that enables analysts to explore the adaptive potential of adversaries, and design engagements that both satisfy immediate goals and also thwart the adversary s ability (or if possible, desire), to adapt and counter friendly act...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-103
Budget: 08/16/04 - 08/16/06

We will deliver technology to realize Synergia's Validated Organizational Choice (VOC) methodology. Organizational choice is decision-making over participants, time, and organizational tasks. Validation is constructive argumentation, guided in its timing and emphases by the potential value of the choice, and disciplined to assess and seek val...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-111
Budget: 04/28/04 - 01/28/05

We present a technology for COA versus eCOA analysis. It provides for modeling the adaptive capacity of human systems at the level of practices, individuals, and multi-actor systems. COAs are realized as restrictions on actors' general performance capacities. We introduce the concept of a decisive engagement. This is one that both informs us ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-210
Budget: 12/05/03 - 06/02/04

Synergia has spent several years working on the handover problem. We have developed a theoretical characterization, Organizational Risk Analysis, that synthesizes human-systems modeling with risk analysis. Based on this, we have conducted extensive empirical studies, and have developed a prototype support technology. This technology, ACCORD, ena...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-008
Budget: 07/07/03 - 01/07/04

We propose to design a very powerful technology to support actor modeling and behavior prediction of arbitrary individual and social actors, all guided by risk analysis calculations. Users without formal background in psychology, social theory, or decision theory will be able to develop actor models relevant to contemplated risks, and form predi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-103
Budget: 05/01/02 - 02/01/03

We will develop a comprehensive methodology, "Risk-Advised Information Management," to support multi-actor (social) choice applications. Well-founded principles from decision theory will be introduced to improve and coordinate decisions among decision-makers. We will show how the support offered by this methodology can be realized in technology,...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-116
Budget: 04/25/02 - 10/28/04

The complexity and tempo of modern conflict, and the severity of its results, prevent us from having a 'perfect plan' prior to execution. At the same time, information resources are constantly delivering information on adversaries and on execution results. Even so, uncertainty is always present. Therefore, a) real-time, dynamic, in situ planning...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-116
Budget: 04/24/01 - 01/24/02

The complexity and tempo of modern conflict, and the severity of its possible results, prevent us from having a 'perfect plan' prior to execution. At the same time, information resources are constantly delivering information on adversaries and on execution results. Therefore, real-time, dynamic, in situ planning and replanning are required t...
