Research Areas

LAS is developing Technology-Enabled Tradecraft and Mission-Inspired Technology for NSA. A key goal is the development of Anticipatory Intelligence, which is an analytical framework focused on assessments of the future, from scanning to detect emerging macro-level conditions, to assessing trends and drivers of specific issues, to positing how drivers may interact and the impact of those interactions, to analyzing the potential for, and impact of, specific developments or events. We support our tradecraft development by bringing together technologists and practitioners from government, industry, and academia to develop tools that are informed by mission needs. LAS collaborators have the opportunity to develop state-of-the-art technologies and to demonstrate them against relevant exemplars across multiple domains. The sum of these efforts is one-of-a-kind opportunity for integrated innovation that will prepare the Intelligence Community to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.

What We Do

Connect With Us

LAS aims to bring together a multi-disciplinary group of academic, industry, and government researchers, analysts and managers together to re-engineer the intelligence analysis process to promote predictive analysis. LAS will do this by conducting both classified and unclassified research in a variety of areas of research. The research done in this area will serve as the foundation for mission effects and integrated back into the enterprise.
