Abstract
Collaboration, always the bane of effective operations, has seen numerous advances towards providing solutions for concurrent action, immersion within the domain, knowledge mining within a common perspective, and inculcation of stakeholder’s defined robots. Google Wave is at the forefront for making these capabilities available all within a web environment, and Systems Engineering Solutions, Inc (SESI) is the first and only company listed as a contributor to the Google Wave protocol for this groundbreaking technology. Partnered with Old Dominion University SESI provides the solution for integrating Wave into the Navy’s Command and Control Architecture. A SESI developed Wave tool-set will change how Naval Commanders in the AOR construct and interact with a traditional Common Operating Picture by: a) allowing naval stakeholders to connect and disconnect from the collaboration network as needed but still contributing to the COP while offline, b) allow documents and media to be incorporated into the COP inline, allowing for the consistent context of the surrounding conversation to always be apparent, and c) allowing robots to take part in a conversation acting as their creators define, adding value and context to the COP automatically.
