The semi-submersible network
MetadataShow full item record
This is a qualitative and quantitative study of the semi-submersible network operating out of the southwestern portion of Colombia. This study combines both of these aspects to provide strategic options for kinetic, non-kinetic, and a combination of both measures for commanders to use to disrupt or destroy this network. Empirical historical data provide the qualitative information essential to understanding the present-day situation. The quantitative data are a combination of geo-spatial analysis, link analysis, social network analysis, and temporal analysis. Together, these paint a picture of the main source of revenue for the FARC. Open-source intelligence was used for all of the analysis which, when combined with other forms of intelligence, may illuminate the network and portray it in a new light.
