AKTiveSA: Supporting Civil-Military Information Integration in Military Operations Other than War.
In, 4th International Conference on Knowledge Systems for Coalition Operations (KSCO), Waltham, Massachusetts, USA,
01 - 02 May 2007.
The ability to integrate information from a variety of sources is a key ingredient of enhanced situation awareness in both conflict and non-conflict situations. Information integration is particularly important in Military Operations Other Than War (MOOTW) contexts because the range of relevant information sources is considerably more diverse than that seen in more conventional warfighting operations. In this paper we provide an overview of a technical demonstrator system (the AKTiveSA TDS), which was developed as part of the UK MoD’s Defence Technology Centre (DTC) initiative. The demonstrator combines a variety of semantic technologies with advanced modes of visualization and interaction in order to highlight how extant Semantic Web technologies can be used to improve situation awareness and facilitate information integration in a simulated humanitarian relief scenario.
