Abstract: This report describes a demonstration of the Framework for Integrating the Complexity of Urban Systems (FICUS) as applied to a theoretical humanitarian crisis (HC) analytical framework for Bangladesh provided by the U.S. Navy Joint Intelligence Center Pacific (JICPAC). This type of framework is used to monitor the risk of abuse or attack involving systems within the U.S. Navy Pacific Command area of responsibility. Output from the FICUS data-conflation model was used to populate this theoretical HC framework with socioeconomic survey-response data usable at fine scales of resolution. A key feature of the FICUS methodology is that it accounts for both known and unknown uncertainties in the data using statistically transparent techniques. The report discusses both the successes and limitations demonstrated by the case study. An inherent and expected limitation of this technology is that because it was developed for population-survey data conflation, it could not greatly facilitate insight into aspects of an HC framework addressing indicators such as macroeconomic investment, commerce, or construction policy.
