ABSTRACT

TANGRAM: Proposer's Information Packet (PIP)   [open ms word - 187KB]

This document describes a computerized system known as Tangram that was designed to search very large stores of information for patterns of activity that look like terrorist planning. Tangram is envisioned as a fully automated, continuously operating, intelligence analysis support system capable of configuring itself to achieve a reasonable tradeoff between estimated intelligence value and cost. The document also describes the challenges that the intelligence community has faced in terror-related data analysis in recent years.
