Paper Abstract

In this paper we propose system architecture for providing direction and dissemination in military environments. We start with a description of the problem of direction and dissemination. We then present our high level architecture and describe the functions of the main system components on which we focus. This includes the types of information and means by which they may be delivered, the filtering and fusion engines employed to focus and limit the information sent to each personnel, and the schedulers used to determine the order of delivery. We consider a structure that includes sending information directly to personnel, or depending on bandwidth and delay constraints, sending meta-information to personnel to assist in self-retrieval of information from a peer-to-peer network of sensors and other personnel. We illustrate the operation of the architecture using a specific military scenario.
