Approved For Release 2000/0 SUBJECT: Interim Response (U) P96-00788R001200360008-3 The information provided as an enclosure to this report was obtained in direct response to a collection requirement provided by your office. The information is from an unconfirmed source,; therefore, caution is warranted in its use. The material which you will now review has been acquired from .a totally new and potentially valuable source of intelligence. Work is currently being conducted to establish ways by which to improve the accuracy and reliability of the data. Your attention to a preliminary evaluation,-and later a final evaluation, will be the basis for our assessment of this new collection technique. In,addition, your comments provide impetus upon which approach modification can be predicated for data collection against the same or any additional targets for which you may have an interest. The effort you expend will greatly'assist us and will ultimately result in'your receiving more information of increasing accuracy and reliability. While formulating your judgements concerning the information provided, the following comments concerning this new source of intelligence may be helpful. Foremost, the information is likely to consist of a mixture of both correct and incorrect elements. Specifically: The descriptive elements are generally of a higher reliability than judgements or labels as to what is being described .by the source (a recreational swimming pool may be mistaken for a water purification pool, or an aircraft hull may be mistaken for a submarine hull, etc.) Therefore, seemingly appropriate descriptive elements should not be rejected because they have been mislabeled. The data will often contain gaps (in a three building complex for example, only two buildings may be described, or an airfield may be added which is not there.) Such gaps or additions should not be taken to mean that the rest of the information provided is necessarily inaccurate. Some of the data provided may be abstract with no apparent impoftance concerning the target. However, when considered in light of additional information provided or obtained at a later date, may then be considered of high intelligence value. (i.e., lack of personnel within a 24 hour operations area on a given time and date, which is later confirmed to coincide with a fire evacuation demonstration.) Therefore, a recommended approach is to first examine the information provided and to answer the questions as best you can (hence this interim response), in order to provide us with sufficient feedback to continue our support with the best methods possible. Later, when the project has been terminated against that specific target, our office will provide you with.a more detailed format wherein a full evaluation of all the information provided can be accomplished. If you have any questions regarding the data you have received, or its interim evaluation, please contact this office any time.
