Introduction to CHATS and CHASIS

by Richard S. Eaton

The heralded success of the Theater Rapid Response Intelligence Package (TRRIP) in Bosnia, Haiti, and elsewhere gave rise to the development of the Army’s counterintelligence/human intelligence (CI/HUMINT) Automated Tool Set (CHATS), the newest member of the All-Source Analysis System (ASAS) family. CHATS is a cen- trally issued Army hardware and software suite designed to meet the unique requirements of CI/HUMINT teams operating in diverse operational environ- ments.

CHATS, the first CI/HUMINT component developed by the Project Manager Intelligence Fusion, is part of a planned four-component CI/HUMINT subsystem within ASAS. When fully completed, the subsystem will provide automated support to CI/HUMINT functions from team-level operators to single-source and all source analysts in the analysis and control element (ACE) or at theater intelligence centers.
