Abstract:

FORCEnet has provided the Navy with unprecedented connectivity, allowing vast amounts of information to flow through the battlespace. This information, however, must be directed and culled in order to be useful. Formalization of best practices is needed in order to leverage the information quickly and effectively. Here we propose to apply The Discovery MachineT (TDM) and its associated methodology, The Discovery Machine Methodology (TDMM) to capture, formalize, and operationalize the best practices employed by naval personnel in the filtering and dissemination of information across a network centric battlespace. Our proposed solution considers information delivery and awareness as decision support issues, rather than communication issues, and as such focuses on the capture of decision making knowledge from naval experts as crucial to solving information awareness problems. An opportunity exists to address the issues of information delivery and collaboration. By allowing decision makers to more directly affect the development of the tools that they themselves use. We provide an environment that enables experts to define their own information retrieval systems based on their best practices. This same application development environment also facilitates the collaboration between users by enabling the design of custom communications tools.
