Multinational war games will test analysis tool

When the U.S. Joint Forces Command conducts a second multinational war 
games experiment in February, it will use a new software analysis tool that 
displays relationships between key facts buried in separate files.

In an event called Multinational Limited Objective Experiment 2, the Joint 
Forces Command will join Australian, British, Canadian and German defense 
officials in enacting a 2010 Pacific Rim scenario to establish whether they 
can easily and securely share information and, together, gauge an enemy's 
socioeconomic, political, military and technological potential.

The information-gathering process, known as an operational net assessment, 
will undergo its second international test from Feb. 10 to Feb. 28. Joint 
Forces Command led a multinational experiment in November 2001, designed to 
test foreign collaboration in military action.

In this second test, a command control cell in Suffolk, Va., will launch 
the invented pre-crisis scenarios in the Pacific.

The research product, ClearResearch, will tag key points or names from 
reams of data that each country will receive on an enemy nation. It will 
analyze those facts, finding relationships to other facts from several data 
sources, whether they are news stories, reports, Web sites or memos.

The software then displays a single view of the relationships, dividing the 
computer screen into separate chunks with lines or circles drawn around 
associated facts or names.

Developed by ClearForest Corp. of New York, the software uses Extensible 
Markup Language, whose universality allows different file and data formats 
to overlap easily, and runs on Microsoft Windows NT and 2000 operating 
systems. Joint command paid approximately $500,000 for the software.
