Abstract:

We present a novel system for a distributed Value of Information-based approach for collecting, disseminating, mediating, and tailoring information to and from Warfighters at the tactical edge and the tactical operations center or forward operating base. By modelling user, mission, environmental, and communications context, we postulate we can provide the Warfighter with equal or better situation awareness SA at a much reduced network transmission cost. By monitoring and adapting to user, mission, environmental, and network context and exploiting multiple presentation modalities, we can reduce the cognitive workload and improve SA by identifying, prioritizing, filtering, shaping, and tailoring information most relevant to the Warfighter or intelligence analyst given the current context.
