Our focus is on outputs rather than inputs.
When you live in a networked environment, it's possible to separate data from applications.
In other words, by finding the anomalous event, what you do is you get out ahead of activities.
So we have a group within the office that is devoted to support for the war fighter. That's, of necessity, an operational and tactical level of concern.
The users are not going to be in the position of accepting what's been collected; they're going to be in the position of being able to demand collection.
Thirdly, as we move through this process of integrating the communications, we will begin to emulate more of the World Wide Web in our work in the future.
One is to ensure that the war fighters and the intelligence analysts get the information that they need when they need it, in a format that's useful to them.
We have been working hard to think about what our combined needs are going to be in the way of intelligence capabilities, not today but 15 to 20 years in the future.
And the reason for focusing on that time frame is that it's going to take us a considerable period of time to develop the new capabilities, processes and organizations that will be needed.
Over the course of two years, we arrived at a point where we began to look at the value added by making information more easily accessible across the intelligence community, both defense and national.
