Abstract:

A dynamic data construct built on the basis of a snap-card paradigm is designed to meet the needs of information empowerment, formation flexibility, and representation versatility for rapid interchange and effective integration of information in complex environment. It facilitates the prompt reporting, gathering, tracking, and analysis of information from wide spread of heterogeneous resources, and effective decision making and event responses. The construct is especially designed to operate in wireless communication environment where the data amount contained in the transmission must be tightly packed. The technique is suitable for applications particularly in C2 situation awareness of battle space and security surveillances of airports, military installations, and occasions of large public events.
