A people-centred approach to military planning

Numerous social, political and economic factors exacerbate today’s conflicts and complex crises. These factors can manifest in a myriad of ways, further undermining the security of civilian populations and jeopardising efforts to achieve stability.

Defence and security planners are keen to develop a deeper, more robust, more holistic, and ultimately more ‘people-centred’ analysis of the human environment in order to better understand, respond to, and resolve conflicts and crises.

Project HAMOC

1
Create a co-designed, data-driven solution for threat and vulnerability analysis to support decision-making in military planning, stabilisation efforts, and humanitarian response.
2
Deliver socio-technical insights to support knowledge development and training on analysing the human environment.
3
Work with organisations across the defence, security and humanitarian sectors to ensure a collaborative approach to conflict and crisis response.

Our Approach

Project HAMOC is being developed using STRIAD®, Trilateral’s cloud-based platform for data-driven risk assessment. Using co-design methods, Project HAMOC will exploit the power of STRIAD® to develop and deliver functionalities that add unique value to planners and decision-makers.

To achieve a result that is fit-for-purpose, Trilateral is working closely with the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) to co-design and pilot the analytical solution.

At Trilateral, our teams collaborate across the technical-social divide disciplinary divide to design innovative and impactful solutions through leveraging machine learning algorithms that are underpinned by rigorous social science research.
