OSINT Concepts and Contributions (TRM-COVOR)

OSINT Questions

By Craig S. Byrnes

A lack of resources and understanding leaves most law enforcing agencies in a tight spot when it comes to predictive analytics. Open-source intelligence (OSINT) is often overlooked though it is often more reliable than some classified data sources.

The Redwine Model (TRM-COVOR) uses crowd-source enhanced collection streams in order to offer alternative predictive analysis on a variety of subjects. This collective analytic strategy operationalizes and fuses various analytic frameworks, so as to generate a predictive model aimed to combat cognitive bias, frivolous speculation, and nonsensical character assaults. This leads to a greater understanding of nuance, resulting in consistently comprehensive, quantifiable, and relevant OSINT products containing sound and transparent analytic judgments.

Situational awareness and an open-mind willing to force objective thinking are preconditions to actionable intelligence. TRM-COVOR goes a step further and supplements relevancy and timeliness by collecting opinions and thoughts bolstered by complicity within a structured thinking environment.
