Sensemaking is a key capability for military coalitions, enabling both individuals and teams to make sense of conflicting, ambiguous and uncertain information. Many features of the military coalition environment are likely to exert an effect on sensemaking capabilities; however, at the present time, we have little understanding of the precise nature of these relationships. Computational modelling provides one means of improving our understanding in this area. By developing models that enable us to explore the effect of factors such as network topology, cognitive heterogeneity, miscommunication and inter-agent trust on the dynamics of both individual and collective sensemaking, we may be able to better understand how specific features of the coalition communication environment affect at least some aspects of the collective sensemaking process.
