In our knowledge-based society collaboration environments are a key Knowledge Management trend. In implementing this trend, the critical step is to capture the collaboration that surrounds visual information used in decision-making. The Phase II project will develop distributed data visualization techniques to support collaborative decision-making. Specifically, it will implement a library of client-user intelligent visualization components that link together displays of information exploitation results (e.g., threats and their predicated behaviors) with a type of “look-ahead” interactive visualization of impacted assets, available sensors and weapons. In its first instantiation, the system will contribute to the development of discrimination and weapon engagement mockup of Battle Management Crew Station system. The technological novelty is in the distributed aspect of visualization and in the incorporation of a mechanism for the synergistic organization of distributed visual components to support dynamic and linked depictions (e.g., “next-step” and “what-if”) in order to rapidly guide the crew to the optimal and shortest threat engagement course of action.
