Abstract:

To meet information needs of operational commanders, user-centric applications will combine Global Information Grid GIG data and services to create a Common Operational Picture COP. The COP, a single identical display of relevant information shared by more than one command, will facilitate collaborative planning and situational awareness. Land warfare decision-makers are particularly interested in ground vehicle mobility characteristics of the battlespace. This paper describes both the Mobility-COP, from which warfighters can assess the ability of forces to maneuver effectively under multiple environmental and tactical conditions, and a formal ontology design to achieve the Mobility-COP in the future GIG net-centric architecture.
