Multinational humanitarian and military efforts such as those seen in Somalia, Kosovo and Afghanistan are known as Complex Humanitarian Emergencies. These types of emergencies are complex and difficult to operate in because they contain political, military and humanitarian considerations. The various actors responding to a CHE can be divided into two distinct groups - military and civilian. Each of these groups needs the other to effectively respond to the crisis. Thus communication, collaboration and coordination are critical. Technology can play a significant role to enable information sharing between the various participants during CHEs. This thesis documents the continued development of a collaborative, Information Technology-based, operation support system designed to facilitate information sharing at the field/tactical level during CHE and Peace Operations. The operational support system was designed in the context of a Tactical Humanitarian Relief Habitat and will undergo a technical evaluation in a simulated CHE/Peace Operations environment. The end state of our research will result in recommendations for continued development of a habitat designed for utilization in the Civil Military Operations enter of a CHE or Peace Operation.
