The Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) sensors have been playing an important role in war for many years and rapid advances in technology have significantly improved the operational capability of coalition military activities. Because of these advances, command and control centres receive large amounts of strategic and tactical level information from ISR assets in real-time. Therefore coalition forces are able to plan their campaigns and task their assets with more accuracy and timeliness. Information superiority gives a great advantage to coalition forces, as we have witnessed in recent years, but managing all these ISR assets and information is not an easy task and it has raised challenges for coalition forces. Therefore, coalition countries are very interested in funding a solution to these problems. Interoperability between ISR assets and other coalition command and control centers, handling the collected information, and processing the collected information before sending it to upper level decision makers are a few of the problems identified for solution by the coalition. In 1999, the Coalition Aerial Surveillance and Reconnaissance (CAESAR) project was started with the membership of seven nations, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States to investigate the problems of interoperability between sensor assets and a single Common Ground Picture (CGP). The report will not only illustrate the issues of interoperability
