Platforms for Assessment of Content Prioritization in C3I GIS Systems

EasyChair Preprint no. 1912

12 pagesDate: November 9, 2019


Military C3I (Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence) operations at the tactical level have come to rely upon Geographic Information Systems (GIS), which commonly offer functionality to display geotagged units of information such as imaging feeds and personnel reports. Management of Information Objects within military GIS applications presents a number of known research challenges tied both to selection of mission-appropriate information and management of Soldier attention. Towards supporting content filtering and prioritization within tactical networks, methods based on the estimated Value of Information specific to mission and environmental context have demonstrated prior benefit (e.g., in conservation of bandwidth). By contrast, limited research has been conducted to-date on Soldier interaction with VoI-based content filtering in GIS applications, including its impact on Situational Awareness over areas of operation. This paper presents foundational work being applied towards studying Soldier interaction with VoI-enhanced GIS applications, covering the design of a supporting experimental platform based on the Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK).
