Paper Abstract

Command Post of the Future (CPOF) is distributed, collaborative Command and Control (C2) system developed as part of a research and development program by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). It was introduced in Operation Iraqi Freedom in January, 2004 and has been in continual use since that time. Anecdotal evidence indicates that CPOF, in the field, has facilitated new ways of sharing information and collaborating. MACE is a follow-on project (not a DARPA program) that intends to (a) verify and quantify the kinds of information sharing and ad-hoc collaboration in CPOF; (b) investigate the potential role of machine learning and other “cognitive” technologies in further facilitating collaboration, problem-solving, situational awareness, strategic and tactical planning, and other aspects of command and war-fighting; and (c) develop a research plan to develop the next generation C2 system that learns to support the decision-makers and facilitates ad-hoc collaboration and information sharing.
