Paper Abstract

Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations center on providing relevant situational understanding to military commanders and analysts to facilitate decision-making for execution of mission tasks. However, limitations exist in tactical-edge environments on the ability to disseminate digital materials to analysts and decision makers. This work investigates novel methods to calculate of Value of Information tied to digital materials (termed information objects) for consumer use, based on interpretation of mission specifications. Followed by a short survey of related VoI calculation efforts, discussion is provided on mission-centric VoI calculation for digital materials via adoption of the preexisting Missions and Means Framework model.
