Abstract:

The Joint Battlespace Infosphere JBI is a combat information management system that provides individual users with the specific information required for their functional responsibilities during crisis or conflict. The JBI integrated data from a wide variety of sources, aggregates this information, and distributes the information in the appropriate form and level of detail to users at all echelons. The JBI was orginally described in the 1998 USAF Scientific Advisory Board SAB report Information Management to Support the Warrior. The JBI is built on four key concepts 1. Information exchange through publish and subscribe, 2. Transforming data into knowledge via fuselets, 3. Distributed collaboration through shared, updateable knowledge objects, and 4. Assigned unit incorporation via force templates.
