Nations all over the globe are confronting crises that demand enhanced coordination and information sharing between the responding civilian and military communities. These crises are generally divided into the categories of humanitarian assistance and disaster relief HADR, stabilization and reconstruction SR, and complex emergencies. Although these types of crises can differ in their causes and specific impacts, there are significant similarities in the information and communications technology ICT to enable each of them. The Directorate for Contingency Support and Migration Planning CSMP, Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Integration OASD NII, and the Center for Technology and National Security Policy CTNSP, National Defense University NDU, established a partnership that focused on identifying civilmilitary information sharing needs and commercial ICT capabilities supporting recent crisis operations. One of the major products from this partnership is a Primer designed to identify current knowledge and best practices in creating a collaborative civil-military information environment. This paper summarizes the major insights that have been developed in creating the Primer.
