Description: Conduct forensic analysis and attribute terrorist acts (including the means and methods of terrorism) to their source(s), to include forensic analysis as well as attribution for an attack and for the preparation for an attack in an effort to prevent initial or follow-on acts and/or swiftly develop counter-options.
Forensics is the collection and examination of evidence associated with an act and is a critical part of the process supporting an attribution determination. Attribution involves the fusion of the science- based technical forensic examination results, all-source intelligence information, and other law enforcement/investigative information. The forensics and attribution capability is central to the identification of terrorist actors, co-conspirators, and sponsorship. They are conducted, in part, to inform government leadership of the responsible actor(s) and/or sponsorship and to assist in the prevention of initial or follow-on acts of terrorism. Attribution assessments always include a confidence determination.
This capability may need to be delivered in a time-constrained, hazardous, or crisis environment. Upon a terrorist act or incident, execution of this capability begins with the swift exploitation of evidence for the collection of intelligence information, and subsequent analysis that contributes to the attribution process. Evidence exploitation may occur at attack sites, identified support locations, networks, or at the site of prior and post activities.
