The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

30 March 2020 -- Representatives from the command’s intelligence and operations divisions spent three days in December trying out the Collection and Monitoring via Planning for Active Situational Scenarios (COMPASS) of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, Va.

COMPASS helps intelligence analysts with large streams of data to uncover adversarial campaigns, and displays results that represent the evidence and the analysis behind each hypothesis.

COMPASS seeks to use advanced artificial intelligence (AI) to help commanders make decisions about the enemy's complex multi-layered activity. COMPASS aims at providing commanders with analytics and decision-support tools.
