Info Ops Media products to convey ISAF’s message to the people of Kabul : ISAF Newspaper ISAF Radio ISAF TV ISAF Loudspeakers ISAF Leaflets They wished to measure to measure Kabuli’s attitudes and the penetration of these ISAF media products.
Dropboxes For & Against For: can use to distribute other material - leaflets & newspapers questionnaires available to all no pressure or time limits for completion cheap & easy to make collections facilitates comparison of police districts potentially large samples Against: security & safety issues multiple entries by individuals collusion problems with illiterate people possible access problems (location vital)

Summary of Conclusions: Presence of ISAF soldiers & ISAF media products well received by the majority of Kabulis. Most Kabulis believe the security situation has improved. There is a good understanding of the ISAF mission. Gaps in knowledge have been identified. TAA is enabling targeting of Info Ops products.
Lessons Simple is good, speed of response is paramount The earlier OA is involved the better the payoff: Need to get the MOS-type studies underway early in order to shape them and establish data collection E xpect the utility of OA to continue throughout the operation - providing analysts are on-hand Reach back is great but still need deployed OA OA team often of value to HQ as source of semi-expert IT: Continues to be the case even with increased “IT literacy” in HQ Many tasks IT-based rather than true OA OA standalone PC kit often in demand Expertise with MS Office applications underlies much of our utility Standalone nature demands IT ability within the team
