Requirements. Effects-based concept and requirements analysis that considers employment concepts, gap and seam analysis, emerging technology, and personnel.
Concept of Operations (CONOPS) Development. CONOPS provides the foundation for emerging operational employment concepts. They provide detailed revision to warfare doctrine for the integration of new technology and systems, or an emerging construct for meeting mission objectives.
Analysis of Alternatives. Anchor leverages decades of operational experience and expertise to develop analysis-based assessment of various organizational decisions. Focused on supporting decisions based on operational impact, analysis also provides succinct summaries that consider return on investment, risk, and total cost.
Operational Assessment. Assessments are the foundation of process and program improvement. Anchor develops measures of effectiveness and performance to capture and measure current capability in context of existing and proposed operating concepts.
Doctrine, Policy, Tactics, Techniques and Procedures. Anchor provides experience and expertise to align strategy to task-level procedures to ensure achievement of mission objectives.
Integrated Vulnerability Assessment Support. Anchor provides an "all-hazards," comprehensive approach to safety and security. We can assist government and commercial customers' response to the challenge of anticipating and preventing attacks made by innovative and adaptive threats. Defense against threats that will impact normal operations requires decision-makers who are aware of, and understand, the impact of second and third order effects. The relationship between operational assets and supporting infrastructure creates inter-relationships and interdependencies (both internal and external) and must be evaluated for: Criticality, Interconnectivity, Dependencies, and Recoverability.
