Research covered in this report has primarily focused on the development of the Intelligent Technology Research Program 1-X concepts and mixed-initiative human-centric multi-participant task support and collaboration interfaces in the context of a realistic and challenging multi-national coalition military scenario. This scenario was created by the Technical Cooperation Program TTCP to foster the development of militarily relevant Knowledge Systems for Command Control Research. A highly dynamic scenario in which the tasks to be performed are changing and in which the coalition participants are rapidly evolving is used to show the value of the 1-X approach. This is done through the creation of 1-X Process Panels and their use to link human and system agents. These systems were demonstrated within the Coalition Agents experiment CoAX - a series of demonstrations over an approximate 3 year period from 2000-2002 and to be described later in this report and in some detail in attached papers.
