A Cultural Framework for the Interoperability of C2 systems

ABSTRACT

Command and Control research is focused on the use of communications and computer systems with the aim being to develop appropriate technology and methodologies to allow all kinds of warfare to be won. This situation is made complicated in joint and coalition operations that raise the need to deal with complex organizational and national cultural barriers. This paper extends the IFIP-IFAC (1999) GERAM enterprise framework with theoretical anthropological and organizational frameworks and creates a specific cultural framework that is applied to the interoperability of C2 systems in coalition operations.

Information Flow Aspects of Inter-organizational Crisis Management

ABSTRACT

The aim of this article is to increase understanding about the implications of information flow priorities for inter-organizational crisis management. The article presents the main results of a prior study that addressed the information requirements of high-level decision-making activities during a sudden crisis situation. The study identified priorities of retrieved and delivered information flows from the perspectives of information content and information update frequency needs. The results provide novel insights into information flow priorities for decision-making in crisis management. They show the most effective information categories to prioritize for decision-making in the context of inter-organizational crisis management.
