Multi-Int Research Initiatives at the Naval Postgraduate School


Wednesday, September 30, 2015


The Naval Postgraduate School Center for Multi-INT Studies (CMIS) has a bold vision to transform the field of intelligence and seeks to vastly improve the current state of the art in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR). To this end, CMIS supports innovative, independent research that has the potential to expand knowledge in related areas. As real-time, accurate and actionable intelligence products are demanded by analysts, warfighters, and decision makers, linear, human-intensive processes are no longer sufficient. The capabilities of current and future adversaries and the dynamism and complexity of the environments in which they operate necessitate vast improvements in the timeliness and execution of intelligence-cycle processes.Humans do not have the cognitive ability or the time to analyze the vast quantities of multi-source, multi-dimensional data that are now available. Revolutionary decision support, situational awareness, sensemaking, inferencing, reasoning, and visualization capabilities must be employed to expediently unlock the information contained in these myriad streams of data.CMIS envisions a future where cognitive technologies can anticipate strategic and tactical information needs, perceptively orchestrate distributed sensors across every domain (cyber, human, terrestrial, air, sea, space, etc.), and deliver timely and accurate recommendations to kinetic and/or non-kinetic agents (human and/or machine) to employ required actions.The transformative technologies of interest are:• Understanding targets as systems• Orchestrated resource management• Cognitive sensemaking• Human-computer symbiosis
