Paper Abstract

In today’s battlefield environments, analysts are inundated with real-time data received from the tactical edge that must be evaluated and used for managing and modifying current missions as well as planning for future missions. This paper describes a framework that facilitates a Value of Information (VoI) based data analytics tool for information object (IO) analysis in a tactical and command and control (C2) environment, which reduces analyst work load by providing automated or analyst assisted applications. It allows the analyst to adjust parameters for data matching of the IOs that will be received and provides agents for further filtering or fusing of the incoming data. It allows for analyst enhancement and markup to be made to and/or comments to be attached to the incoming IOs, which can then be re-disseminated utilizing the VoI based dissemination service. The analyst may also adjust the underlying parameters before re-dissemination of an IO, which will subsequently adjust the value of the IO based on this new/additional information that has been added, possibly increasing the value from the original. The framework is flexible and extendable, providing an easy to use, dynamically changing Command and Control decision aid that focuses and enhances the analyst workflow.
