A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification
This Program Element (PE) conducts rapid prototyping, advanced technology demonstrations, and advanced concept technology demonstrations of information
and broadcast systems technology. This includes planning, analysis, evaluation, and production information systems capabilities and distribution and dissemination
broadcast systems capabilities. It provides a means for demonstrating and evaluating the utility of emerging/advanced technologies in as realistic an operational
environment as possible by SOF users. This PE integrates efforts with each other and conducts technology demonstrations in conjunction with joint experiments and
other assessment events. Evaluation results are included in a transition package, which assists in the initiation of or insertion into an acquisition program. The PE also
addresses unique, joint special mission or area-specific needs for which a few-of-a-kind prototypes must be developed on a rapid response basis, or are of sufficient
time sensitivity to accelerate the prototyping effort of a normal acquisition program in any phase.

Change Summary Explanation
Funding:
FY09: Decrease of -$2.555 million is due to Small Business Innovative Research transfer (-$0.407 million) and reprogramming for Foliage Penetration efforts (-
$2.148 million).
FY10: Decrease of -$0.021 million due to Section 8097 Congressional general reductions.
FY11: Increase of $4.942 million is due to the DoD not estimating FY 2011 cost when the FY 2010 President's Budget was prepared.
Schedule: None.
Technical: None.

A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification
This project conducts rapid prototyping of information and broadcast system technology. This includes cyber capabilities that predict the best media channels to reach
potential target audiences, data mining and information collections tools, propaganda and social behavior analytical tools, cultural analysis toolsets and emerging
technologies that support the planning and analytical needs for the Psychological Operations (PSYOP) forces. It provides a means for demonstrating and evaluating
the utility of emerging/advanced technologies in as realistic an operational environment as possible by SOF users. This project integrates efforts within this project and
conducts technology demonstrations in conjunction with joint experiments and other assessment events and performs market research on emerging technologies that
support all phases of PSYOP. Evaluation results are included in a transition package, which assists in the initiation of or insertion into an acquisition program. The
project also addresses unique, joint special mission or area-specific needs.
Seeks technologies that will transform current PSYOP capabilities through two major objectives: 1) Exploit technologies capable of disseminating products to
reach target audiences across a variety of media to include audiences in denied areas. 2) Automate and improve PSYOP planning and analytical capability
through technologies that are integrated into SOF planning systems (Cultural Analysis, Targeting, Theme Development, Media & Product Selection, Distribution &
Dissemination, and Measures of Effectiveness). Develop software applications that increase the efficiency and shorten the timeline to get PSYOP dissemination
packages approved. Develop hardware/software tools that facilitate the collaboration and sharing of information and other critical data.
PSYOP Modernization. This initiative will initiate and continue development of emergent technologies available in the marketplace to transform and modernize PSYOP
planning, analysis, development, broadcast, distribution, dissemination, and feedback capabilities. This initiative will also continue development of appropriate emerging
technologies initially identified by ATDs and ACTDs to transition to acquisition programs. Technologies include: multi-frequency broadcasts systems; digital broadcast
capabilities; remote controlled electronic paper; near real-time command and control of unattended PSYOP systems, especially in denied areas; focused/beam speaker
sound technologies; visual projection technologies; advanced commercial broadcast technologies including amplitude modulation (AM) and frequency modulation (FM)
radio transmitters and antenna; television (TV) transmitter and antenna systems; internet and telephony dissemination and broadcast systems, technologies capable
of disseminating PSYOP products to reach target audiences across a wide variety of media into denied areas; and technologies that automate and improve PSYOP
planning and analytical capability through integrated capabilities.

on Predator type Unmanned Aerial Vehicle platforms. Demonstrated and performed EUE for the
broadcast payload for High Altitude Unmanned Aerial System (Global Observer or HALE). Both of
these EUEs will be in preparation for transition. In addition, demonstrated and performed EUE for the
PSYOP Planning and Analysis System, which will lead to the transition of software/hardware.

FY 2009 Accomplishments:
FY09 Explored emergent technologies available in the marketplace to transform and modernize
PSYOP technology capabilities across several PSYOP shortcomings to include: the next generation
loudspeaker system, long range broadcast system, PSYOP media displays, and next generation
leaflet delivery system. These efforts will also enhance and modernize PSYOP broadcast systems and
PSYOP print systems.
FY 2010 Plans:
FY10 Continue exploring emerging technologies available in the marketplace to transform and
modernize PSYOP technology capabilities across several PSYOP shortcomings to include: the next
generation loudspeaker system, scatterable variants and modular systems that meet multiple concepts
of operations scenarios, long range broadcast system, Commando SOLO and terrestrial capabilities
that are air droppable, stand alone and networked, and next generation leaflet delivery capabilities.
Efforts enhance and modernize PSYOP broadcast systems and PSYOP print systems. Develop
toolsets to increase the ability of the PSYOP soldier to select appropriate dissemination assets for
influence. Research analytic toolsets that focus on predicting human/cultural behavior and appropriate
stimuli for influence.
