Modeling Collaboration in Tactical Network-Centric Environments
MetadataShow full item record
The paper addresses testbed for experimental modeling of decision support and collaborative processes in tactical network-centric operations. This project, supported by partners from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, USSOCOM, Sweden, Austria, and Singapore is based on the NPS Tactical Network Topology (TNT) testbed, comprised of long-haul OFDM networks combined with self-forming wireless mesh links to radiation detection sensors, and real-time radiation awareness collaboration with geographically distributed experts. The casestudy conducted by the NPS team during the Summer of 2006 included Maritime Interdiction Operation (MIO), High-Value Target (HVT) tracking, and Emergency Response coordination scenarios, in which geographically distributed command centers and subject matter experts collaborate to facilitate situational understanding and course of action selection.
