Abstract:

Using technology to obtain and process information requires training not only in human-computer interaction but also in human-human-computer collaborative interaction. Warfighters must not only develop their own situational awareness SA, they must understand each others SA Pew, 1995. This common ground is what each collaboration participant assumes about the others to ensure effective interactions Ross, 2003 Wellons, 1993. Communication is key. Collaborators must coordinate and share information. Collaboration influences military operations at all levels. Technical interoperability is not enough to produce the synchronization required.
