Applying Analytic Techniques in Times of Crisis
The Challenge: Fuel senior analysts and data scientists were integral to the design, formulation, and initialization of the advanced analytics data mart of a counterterrorism community client as it was set up shortly after terrorist attacks. While traditional all-source intelligence analytic techniques were the primary tools at the outset, the organization’s vision was to create an advanced analysis cell that would serve as a petri dish for exploring new and disparate data sources, emerging technology, advanced analytic tools, and imaginative methodologies to bring it all together.
Our Approach: As key members of this team, Fuel analysts and data scientists played a critical role in turning this vision into reality over a 10-year period. As project subject matter experts and respected expert sources of knowledge on some of our nation’s most challenging adversaries, the Fuel team was integral to understanding the data sources and their potential applications for the client.
The Result: Together with government and consultant associates, we continue to apply advanced analytic techniques using big data against terrorist organizations to help keep our country safe.
