Abstract
This report reviews research literature pertaining to the theory of Common Intent (Pigeau & McCann, 2000) and Command and control (C2). In particular, the review related scientific and military literature to the theory of Common Intent, identified studies that clarify the concept of Common Intent and its role in C2, identified relevant factors and methodologies, and generated recommendations for a research program to explore Common Intent. Based on the review, the report identifies overlapping use of the terms common intent and command intent and makes suggestions to clarify these overlaps. The review also revealed several lines of research related to the theory of Common Intent, including a theory of Command Concept, the concept of mental models, tacit knowledge, and common ground. A framework for research is proposed to examine how common intent affects the generation, communication, interpretation and implementation of common intent in particular mission settings, with different levels of diversity among team members.
