Socio-Cultural Models – Verification and Validation

Problem Statement:

  • The goal of this project is to design and produce a semi-automated, V&V software solution for Human Social Cultural Behavior (HSCB) models to support end-users for training, campaign planning, and operations.

Technical Approach:

  • A controlled test environment uses empirical and evolutionary algorithms for testing complex models with socio-cultural attributes to identify the conditions and bounds in which the end user should use the models.


  • Social and culture behavior models dramatically improve both strategic and tactical planning by empowering decision makers with insights and possibilities.
  • The technology is used to support end users in the US Army, Air Force and other components of the Department of Defense and potentially in the Department of Homeland Security and the Intelligence Community.
