TIGR was created as a tool…



to supports Small Unit Leaders
(ONS 1/1
st

CAV 2007)


Soldiers were relying on Microsoft Office and Falcon view


DA G
-
2 has since designated TIGR as the primary mission tool for Company Level Intel Teams



to provide full mission cycle support
(planning, analysis, execution,
debrief)


RIP / TOA tool of choice (Theaters Repository)



for information dissemination
“Every Soldier is a Sensor”


It’s not just about collecting information from Soldiers


It’s also about disseminating information to Soldiers



to provide an intuitive/simple user capability



to support
austere/limited tactical bandwidth
networks
(even with
media
-
rich reports)



not to replicate other BCS capability


it augments existing
architecture


UNCLASSIFIED

UNCLASSIFIED


Works in austere bandwidth networks


Distributed System


39,000 users (No single
“master” web server, 75 in Iraq and 135 in Afghan)


Local
-

down to the Company/ODA/Platoon
(COP/JSS/FB)


Minimize WAN utilization and impacts; advanced
policies for data distribution. On demand for pulling
content from other nodes


Operational feedback from soldiers from our forum


Simple to use; unstructured reports; building products are easy; and
limited training required (60 minutes)


Automated update/Monitoring system


Performs database upgrades; code upgrades; system resets remotely;
keeps track of success; repeats failed ones due to network outage etc.

System Description


A server
-
client type system with
some key characteristics:


Decentralized data management via
caching servers


High network disruption tolerance


TIGR tolerates at
-
the
-
edge network
outages and degradations through
resynchronization when connectivity
returns


Low Bandwidth Utilization


Transfers media
-
rich reports with
minimum impact on the overall
network performance

SC Information/Data Challenges


Theater interdepartmental and interagency information/data sharing
(Military, DOS, DOJ, USAID, UN, Host Nation and others)


Mission data overload


d
eployed forces require the ability to data
mine, extract, classify, store and analyze the data.


Technical solution must satisfy Joint, Component and DOS
requirements.


Mission information/data sharing upon RIP/TOA.


Persistent data storage infrastructure for deployed forces to facilitate
harvesting of data and Tactical Knowledge Management (TKM).


To effectively implement TKM an automated analytical tool must
harvest data from Theater, Joint and National data bases.


Unclassified solutions required
