Abstract:

This paper presents a generic Network Centric Information Structure NCIS that can be used by civilian, military and public sectors, and that supports information handling applied to crises management and emergency response. The top level requirements specification for such a network centric based system adapted to collect, handle and distribute important information is presented together with a suggested layout of a network centric demonstrator that supports the information management during emergency and crisis. The paper presents a prioritized set of important information elements that would be of value during a crisis or a rescue mission. It suggests how the information should be collected, stored and distributed, and it suggests information distribution methods supporting a network centric information structure concept. The work is funded by Teleplan and the Norwegian Research Council.
