One recent example of Army innovation came from Army reserve officer, 2nd Lt. Christian Lance Relleve, whose academic background in architecture, human security, and global intelligence led him to develop an algorithm that can predict a building’s interior layouts.

The program is intended to be used for mission planning where no information about a target structure can be obtained beforehand. A good estimation is an acceptable substitute for zero information.
