Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to present the concepts of ISACC, known as the Intelligent System for Advanced Command and Control that would help users improve their daily management of resources and operations. ISACC today has been deployed at both the Changi Airport (voted as the best airport in the world) as well as the Singapore Utilities for water management in 2013. Research and development are still continuing to look into deploying ISACC for the Singapore Police Force and other agencies with more mobile devices. The idea is to increase their C2 agility through more collaboration among the mobile forces, monitored by the Operations Centre. Four trials were conducted for the Singapore Police Force in managing Singapore's National Day Parade event. The second part of the paper will cover the lesson learned during these trials in the implementation and use of smartphones as part of ISACC for the Singapore Police Force. As smartphones becomes more pervasive in the world today, this paper will explain the value and lessons learned in using these devices for managing highly-mobile forces in operations, as well as ability for these mobile forces to synchronize their activities with each other, giving rise to better shared awareness among team members.
