Abstract:

The emergence of Department of Defense Directive 3000.05 is enabling Security, Stabilization, Transition, and Reconstruction SSTR operations to become a core U.S. military mission. These operations are now given equal priority to combat operations. The immediate goal in SSTR is to provide the local populace with security, restore essential services, and meet humanitarian needs. The long term goal is to help develop indigenous capacity for securing and maintaining essential services. Therefore, many SSTR operations are best performed by indigenous groups, with support from foreign agencies and professionals. However, SSTR operations in response to large-scale disasters may benefit from military involvement. This article describes a conceptual portal, Share- InfoForPeople, that incorporates advanced Information and Communication Technology ICT to enable collaboration, coordination, and information sharing across the civil-military boundary during SSTR operations.
