Abstract:

During Trident Warrior 2004, a net-centric initiative was evaluated for demonstrating reach-back Image, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance ISR video exploitation. Specifically, the initiative examined the concept of remote, but timely, support provided by a small team of extremely capable personnel. While information, in the form of images, was successfully pushed from the reach-back facility to the afloat forces, and all technical requirements were met, a number of problems were identified with the process. There are important issues the lie beyond technical connectivity. Enabling proactive actions at a reach-back facility requires achieving shared situation awareness, which in turn requires effectively addressing the procedural and cognitive requirements for supporting shared situation awareness. Human-System Integration can play a prominent role in defining and guiding this solution.
