Abstract : Even with a wide array of mathematics available, forming a data continuum is a challenging task unless we can devise some kind of overall framework to guide us. We believe that such a framework can be built using process control and feedback concepts. If problems are formulated in terms of those kinds of networks, and if the networks are interconnected by feedback loops where the processes they describe are defined to be interactive, then we can not only form a closed mathematical structure but also exercise it practically. When targets are stationary and well defined, one might use a wide variety of modern devices to inhibit assault and to limit the success of any assaults once undertaken. The point is that, once we have clearly specified the physical possibilities of attack, the event chains which describe how each assault plan would need to be formulated and pursued could be established with some certainty. Once that kind of information was developed, group-type psychological profiles could be postulated to describe individuals who might undertake those kinds of actions.
