Background and Workshop Vision

Knowing where the enemy is, how many there are, what they’re doing, how they’re supplied and what kind of support they have gives our forces a distinct edge.  AISR is a key capability for providing near-realtime threat identification, tracking and targeting, as well as battlefield situational awareness.  AISR missions, performed by manned and unmanned platforms and the sensors they employ, have expanded exponentially in the recent Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts as ISR sensors became smaller and more efficient and platforms became more reliable and able to provide persistent loiter time. Determining the proper portfolio of AISR assets, and ensuring we have the manpower and enablers necessary for future success will require challenging and innovative analyses.

The goal of the workshop is to improve the understanding of the strengths and limitations of current AISR analytic techniques and generate ideas for developing new/improved analytic methodologies
