The Operations Analyst and Researcher directly supports the Assessment Cell serving as an operational analyst and researcher.

Operations analysts properly define the problem, gather facts and make necessary assumptions, generate potential solutions, develop a methodology for solving the problem, analyze the problem using a variety of analytical techniques, clearly communicating the complex problem to the decision makers, and recommend a solution. The Operations Analyst will conduct periodic assessments of security forces advisory efforts and recommend improvements and decisions to the NSOCC- A/SOJTF-A staff and Commander at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels. The Operations analyst will employ experience, education, and skills to assess and improve the headquarters assessment processes and methods for improving the effectiveness and autonomy of indigenous forces. Operations Analysts will assess qualitative and quantitative data to identify spatial and temporal trends. They will also develop approaches to more effectively allocate or employ limited advisors and resources toward advisory and assistance efforts.
