Abstract
Phase I entails a systematic investigation of handheld devices and wiki-based information sharing in relation to the needs and requirements of PSYOP soldiers in order to produce an optimal design of the Mobile Intelligence Data Acquisition System (MIDAS). The investigation will thoroughly cover hardware, software and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) considerations, capitalizing on user-centered design throughout the design cycle. The end result of Phase I will be a functioning prototype of the cultural intelligence wiki and the specific guidelines for selecting the three handheld devices and accessories (based on availability at time of selection) for wiki integration and evaluation during the Phase II product testing and development cycle.
