Abstract : This paper discusses a new approach to answering Requests for Information (RFIs) from military commanders, intelligence analysts, individual soldiers and others received by reach-back information and intelligence collection repositories. This new approach avoids the previous ideals of either searching out a set of a thousand documents or building one large all-encompassing ontology and instead embraces the concept of custom ontologies based on each users query and returns to that user a concise and organized knowledge set along with visualizations that invite exploration and facilitate assimilation.
