Abstract:

The purpose of this research project was to explore how information is collected and used in the battlefield and identify areas of further research would help ease the burden of processing, managing and transmitting that information. The research included surveys of the intelligence analysis process and an exploration of some of the sources of data produced and consumed in the battlespace. The findings of this research led to the identification of several areas of research that could help warfighters deal with the problems posed by the DoDs rapidly growing mountain of unorganized and unprocessed data. The culmination of the research is the development of the Integrity-Relevance-Classification Data Sharing Model and proposes areas for its future analysis and implementation.
