The Army’s Assured Mobility concept calls for “establishing the mobility common operational picture” (Mobility COP) which includes assessing maneuverability in the battlespace. Moreover, the Global Information Grid (GIG) is emerging as the next-generation architecture for military command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information and will play a central role in composing the COP and the Mobility COP as a focus area of particular interest to land warfare decision makers. In the GIG, data and information will be made available through discoverable and callable services to the spectrum of users, software agents, and software systems. This implies there must be a means of interpreting data and information and a level of interoperability for exchanging and processing data and information. This furthermore necessitates that the elements of the Mobility COP be delineated and an underlying ontology be developed for common understanding and consistent application. To accomplish this, how does one determine what those elements are that comprise the Mobility COP? And, how can the input be organized into an ontology that promotes standards and interoperability among systems? This paper will describe the process we employed to elicit elements of the Mobility COP and to evolve a corresponding ontology. The scope of the work involves ground vehicle mobility at the tactical echelon.
