Information integration and aggregation from a variety of sources, including Command and Control (C2) systems, reconnaissance data, satellite data, unit capability data, logistical data and real-time. Developments have been slow for reasons of fundingpriorities, previous false starts, and the gap between commercial technologies and the Defense specific needs. Several factors now allow information centric warfare to become reality. First, the developments under DARPA, Information Technology Office,Intelligent Software, Communicator research program has lead the commercial industry in areas of speech recognition and interaction providing real-world technology evaluation. Second, the US Air Force Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) with the JointBattlespace Infosphere (JBI) program reinitiated a battlefield common picture in 1998. Thirdly, Web technology has advanced so fast over the last five years that information solutions have become easier, and more affordable. To this end, the effortproposed is to research, develop and validate Web technologies to obtain a multi-model, common-authoring, universal access to the World-Wide-Web for the wireless industry and hands-free applications, that supports the DARPA Communicator and US Air ForceSAB JBI missions.
