Military forces, operating as a networked force, can plan, decide, and act collaboratively and concurrently to accomplish many tasks simultaneously. Operating in a collaborative information environment will enable the joint force to transition from the use of a hierarchical, serial planning process to the use of a parallel, collaborative planning process to produce reduced decision times and an increased tempo of operations. Collaboration tool suites were introduced during two recent events to support operational planning and decisionmaking processes by providing an alternative means to communicate, collaborate, and share information among warfighters that extends what is available in today’s current operational environments. One goal for these events was to develop an understanding of the implications and effects of distributed planing. A second goal was to obtain feedback on the effectiveness of these new tools for supporting future military operations in a distributed, network-centric joint force and to identify user-defined enhancements that would better meet future joint operational requirements. New information technology tools, to be used as part of a networked, web-based collaborative system were also introduced. This paper discusses the strengths and weaknesses of the tool suites and describes additional capabilities needed for future collaborative information environments.
This paper is submitted for consideration for the 2002 CCRTS track on C2 Experimentation.
