The Field Information Support Tool (FIST) is a field-based collection system using commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) smartphones, customized software, and a robust information management backend known as FusionPortal with a deployable sensor fusion system known as FusionView that enables information to flow from the point of capture to an analyst in near real-time regardless of location or physical proximity. FIST is designed to operate in a variety of environments and supports a variety of mission sets such as counterinsurgency operations (COIN), counter-narcotic missions (CN), and humanitarian assistance and disaster response (HA/DR). The overarching principle of FIST is the development of a user-friendly data collection tool that utilizes automated information systems to enable unstructured data to be collected, processed, and structured for analysis and visualization in a variety of analytic packages. FusionView enables real-time integration of disparate sensor systems that provides a powerful common operating picture critical for today's decision makers. FusionPortal allows for data to be exported and analyzed using geospatial, geo-statistical, link, and social network analysis in addition to enabling the exchange of information with external databases such as the Worldwide Civil Information Database (WCID), the International Studies of Violent Groups (ISVG), and the Combined Information Data Network Exchange (CIDNE).
