Abstract:

The Naval Postgraduate School NPS is exploring key factors that affect how teams, particularly distributed teams, develop shared situational awareness SSA in a Complex Humanitarian Emergency CHE environment. This research develops the foundation for deploying the following Network-Centric Human-Agents in CHE habitats, an integrated environment of mobile operators, deployable wireless networks, sensors, collaborative tools, and multiagent systems. We experimentally explored how to integrate a deployable wireless network with peer-to-peer P2P collaborative tools and situational awareness agents. This was done to establish shared awareness of the events that were taking place during the CHE operation. The major findings include the following a better understanding of the critical role of peer-to-peer communication, network performance monitoring, and innovative agent-based architecture for maintaining seamless access to the remote data bases and expert sources.
