While there is no apparent direct connection, I trust that DARPA was 
well aware of the definition of Kairos -- 
https://stratml.us/drybridge/index.htm#KAIROS -- when they named their 
AI schemas project.

In any event, the data in Director Scherlis' flow chart is now available 
in StratML Part 2 format at 
Clicking on a Relationship link opens the target (referent) in a new 
browser tab.  Closing the new tab returns the user to the previous tab.  
Internal references are cited by their GUIDs; external references must 
be cited by their entire URLs, including their GUIDs.

While the stylesheet does not take advantage of the Relationship Type 
attribute to depict Value Chains in flow chart format, presumably an 
enterprising XSLT stylists with time on their hands might be able to do so.

Documenting relationships in the XForm for StratML Part 2 
<http://waterland.freeboxos.fr:8009/Part2Form.xml> is not a simple 
matter.  Most users will need help from tools, apps, and services that 
not only enable discovery of such relationships but also make it easy to 
confirm and document them for the benefit of other stakeholders.

See StratML tool, app, and service requirement:

    Goal 8: Relationships
    - Enable human beings to see and verify candidate relationships
    identified by automated services and to draft concise narrative
    descriptions of such relationships as well as to nominate such
    relationships not previously identified.
