Abstract:

Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance ISTAR is an evolving information operations IO concept in the Canadian Land Force. ISTAR provides the commander with a system to collect and process required information for producing intelligence on the threat and knowledge on the environment during operations, as well as knowledge needed to identify, acquire and engage targets. The various processes used to collect and analyze the information are the result of numerous individual systems some of which have only been recently introduced in the field while many others are still in development as a result of advances in the information age. This compendium of systems makes ISTAR a System of systems, as opposed to a single system. These four papers present the new Canadian information centric collaborative workspace concept that provides a more coherent information management approach to better support the Commander in both its tactical intelligence and operations activities at brigade level. The info-centric collaborative workspace concept aims at offering a seamless collaborative environment enabling the ISTAR staff to perform their tasks using different applicationsservices through a standardized Human Computer Interface HCI.
