PRIORITY TRENDS MATRIX
4QFY94 through 2QFY96


Section A is a matrix chart of all the priority trends within their respective BOS. The chart shows the number of times per quarter an observer/controller (OC) documented that particular trend/observation.

In this example, Reconnaissance and Surveillance plan development is "Negative Trend 1" under TA.5 Intelligence Battlefield Operating System (BOS). This means it was reported more times in the last seven quarters than any other TA.5 negative trend, and is therefore the number 1 priority. It was reported 12 times in the last seven quarters (2 in 1QFY95; 4 in 2QFY95; 2 in 3-4QFY95; 4 in 1-2QFY96). NOTE: Battlefield Operating System (BOS) codes, i.e., "TA.5 Intelligence", are based on TRADOC Pam 11-9, Blueprint of the Battlefield. "TA" refers to the tactical level of war. The number "5" is the Intelligence BOS number.
