The following project was completed in two phases. The first phase sought to identify collaborative decision making tools currently on the market or being developed specifically for naval tactical C2 purposes. This was accomplished through a combination of database and Internet searches. Only a few collaborative decision making tools specifically for naval tactical operations were identified, particularly the Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC), the Multiplatform Engagement Capability (MPEC) and Thales’ Combat Management Systems. Only limited technical information on Thales’ and Raytheon’s systems was available but links to their product literature have been provided. Other projects and programmes not specifically for the Navy may be important to watch for new developments, namely: NATO’s Network Enabled Capability (NNEC) program, the US Air Force Network-Centric Collaborative Targeting (NCCT) and the US Joint Integrated Air and Missile Defense )JIAMD) initiative. Major players in this field include Raytheon, Thales. And Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI). Many of the development contracts in recent years have been awarded to consortia, often led by Raytheon, Thales or Lockheed ��artin. The second phase of this project was centered on identifying major organizations (academic, government and companies) currently conducting research in the areas of human-computer interaction and collaborative decision support tools, with a focus on Canadian organizatio
