Abstract
While great strides have been made in converting service-specific military operations into joint operations, USAF's Common Operating Picture (COP) is still stove-piped. Attempts have been made to use portals for faster, easier access to data by multiple users and user groups. The results have been mixed, with some portal development efforts successful and others not successful. Research Associates of Syracuse proposes to develop an Operator Centric Collaborative Intelligence System (OCCIS) as a COP portal to address this need. This COP portal will allow multiple users and user groups to easily access, contribute, and consume information. It will format and display data in intuitively obvious and easy-to-use ways, each determined by the information user, not the information provider. It will accept data, especially all the INTs, from multiple streams and sources, at multiple security levels, and permit humans to compare and correlate that data. It will permit the reverse flow of that finished intelligence up to decision makers at remote locations. This portal will use open standards and COTS software whenever possible, and it will always use COTS hardware.
