The conceptualization of an agent-based, simulation framework that allows the use and testing of various social and behavioral science approaches for understanding the motivation and intent associated with terrorist activities. The framework design provides a LEGO-style toolbox that can convert sophisticated SME theses on individual and social behavior into computationally tractable, mathematical representations. Through parameterization, the reconfigurable framework can then simulate the dynamics of any particular group or interacting collection of terrorist groups.
