As part of DARPA’s Integrated Crisis Early Warning System (ICEWS) program, we developed models that sought to bridge the gap between social science capabilities and operational needs for seven countries in Southeast Asia. These models integrated well corroborated social science theories with a wide variety of country-specific data taken from quantitative data sets, qualitative and monographic reports, and input from subject matter experts. As a result, these models were able to successfully to produce rolling monthly forecasts about specific events of instability as well as answer specific questions about the nature of these events: the causal mechanisms driving the instability, the actors most likely to be involved, the short and long term effects, and possible ways to mitigate the instability.

In a second experimental condition, we removed the agents associated with the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in order to operationalize a drawdown of US and International Forces in Kandahar (Landler and Cooper, 2011). As opposed to the assassination example which demonstrates how the models can be used to respond quickly to changes on the ground beyond the control of operators, simulating a drawdown of US forces is an example of how the models can be used to test policy outcomes before they are implemented.
