DSG created the GTTAC database that the Annex uses to summarize global terrorism incidents. GTTAC uses comprehensive, open-source intelligence through multimedia data aggregators to identify reports of potential terrorist incidents. Data acquisition begins with using open-source technology tools developed in Python atop a Linux platform for text analysis, predictive modeling, and feature extraction. GTTAC applies ontologies for terrorist incidents, perpetrators, tactics for attack, weapon use, and the targeting of victims and facilities.
