Current information systems are difficult to change to produce information that is tailored to the specific needs and context of end users. The information they produce is static, and application reengineering can be complex, costly and time consuming, potentially leading to system downtime. In addition, multiple information systems and sources can produce duplicate or inconsistent information that requires significant human effort to correlate, integrate and understand. The Joint Battlespace Infosphere JBI is defined as a combat information management system that provides individual users with the specific information required for their functional responsibilities and provides uniform rules for publishing new and updated objects into the JBI and promptly alerts any JBI clients that have subscribed to such objects. The transform core service of the JBI enhances the value of information disseminated by the JBI through information manipulation mechanisms fuselets that tailor the information space to the specific needs of the warfighter and mission. This paper describes the results of an experiment that was designed to measure the validity and value of the JBI fuselet concept within the context an Air Operations Center AOC and a dynamic collaborative mission replanning scenario.
