Charles River Analytics, a developer of intelligent systems solutions, is designing and developing a system for linking, indexing, and validating overseas information operations (IO) courses of action (LIVIO). LIVIO is a DARPA-funded effort to address the military’s increasing dependence on IO.
Mr. Michael Farry, Senior Scientist at Charles River explained, “LIVIO guides Company Intelligence Support Teams (CoISTs) through the process. CoISTs have access to many information sources. Their analysis must focus on what company commanders, platoon leaders, and intelligence officers need to know. It can be a daunting task to synthesize information from all the available sources for these different audiences. LIVIO provides a single application they can use to perform analysis and export products tailored to individual needs.”
