Research in reconnaissance traditionally focuses on data detection and discrimination methods. Less emphasis is placed on transforming the collected data into useful information and presenting it to key command and control nodes. Information not presented in a timely manner is excluded from the decision process. This thesis proposes a conceptual model of intelligent software agents to support the human decision process and reconnaissance- related tasks. The Mobile Agent Reconnaissance Kit (MARK) suggests a hierarchy of software agents to facilitate data integration and coordination in a network- centric multisensor environment. The model uses static and mobile agents to collect data from dispersed, heterogeneous data sources, process and fuse the data, and present the resultant information to the user in an HTML file. The authors explore applications of MARK in terms of the military Intelligence Cycle, the Joint Director of Laboratories (JDL) Technical Panel for C3I Data Fusion Model, and the Joint Operations Planning and Evaluation System (JOPES) crisis Action Planning
