Abstract:

Numerous factors impact the efficient and effective exchange of information and knowledge in modern command and control. One factor in particular is the extent to which those who create and share information and knowledge understand the tasks and information requirements of those who will use the shared information. Efficient and effective information exchange requires that two classes of users, referred to as information consumers and information producers, develop a shared understanding of tasks, resources, and information requirements. This shared understanding serves as a framework for the intricate series of knowledge transactions collaboration, inherent to planning, and decision support. This paper will 1 introduce some of the current work associated with military command and control knowledge transactions, 2 provide examples of real-world knowledge transaction characteristics and limitations, and 3 discuss recent, ongoing, and planned research efforts to better understand and improve such transactions.
