is the kind of technology that tightly aligns with our customers' expectations, especially when it comes to transportation of special cargoes - pharmaceutical products, perishable goods, valuables, and others," Lazarev added.
So that backend TPED
piece is still a very significant and critical problem.
Finally, the CJCS and SecDef stressed that "the Department must develop a clear policy and implementation plan to explain when and how coalition partners can be connected to US networks and how data can be shared with those partners." (10) In their view, one solution to the US TPED
challenge was through increased reach-back to US-based processing capacity.
networks and when and how data can be shared with those partners." (10) In their view, increased reachback to US-based processing capacity represented one solution to the United States' problem with TPED
. In addition, they believed that allied partners who contributed ISR assets to a joint and combined campaign should share in the intelligence output.
The PE may not be lost and may be en route from the theater of operations to the TPED
Once Fuse and Synergize GEOINT reaches the operational Task, Process, Exploit, and Disseminate (TPED
) cycle, commanders will have a full-spectrum visualization of the battlespace with unparalleled actionable intelligence.
The current obsession with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is an example of repeating the same mistake that continues to occur with our multi-billion-dollar remote technical collection programs--hundreds of billions spent on gold-plated collection systems, but relatively nothing on Tasking, Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination (TPED
) systems with which to make sense of all the sources, all the time, at all levels (strategic, operational, tactical, technical).
OH, and at 2:00 am we TPED
the TA lounge and called random room numbers unpleasantly waking anyone that had gone to bed...."
This forecast does not include datalinks or reconnaissance-data tasking, processing, exploitation, and dissemination (TPED
), which will receive huge amounts of new funding through the decade.
The tasking, processing, exploitation, and dissemination (TPED
) phase of ISR operations is critical not only to IO but also to every phase of Air Force influence operations from counterair to targeting.
Tasking, processing, exploitation, and dissemination (TPED
) of national space products is currently a major hindrance to fully utilizing these assets.
