Future military operations will still rely on increasingly complex joint and multinational operations. Thus, innovative concepts, doctrine and technologies are required to support the emergence of new planning and execution systems, ones that are more flexible, adaptive, interoperable and responsive to a changing and uncertain environment. The ability to conduct joint and multinational operations imposes shared information and systems interoperability requirements, as well as common standards to operate among coalition members. Growing global complexity and the rapid pace of current and future military operations call for a transition from the rigid vertical organizational structure of the past to the more integrated, modular and tailored decision support required by today's demand. The recently proposed Network Centric Operations (NCO) framework offers a unique setting to take on emerging challenges. Even though recent attempts in deliberate planning tools focus on providing "on the fly" precise tailoring and time phasing of force deployment in crisis situations, suitable responses generated by remote military planners and commanders still impose incomplete time-varying information analysis from dynamic and uncertain sources of information. These are subject to a variety of constraints, including bounded computational resources and communication bandwidth, as well as other real-time requirements. The combination of artificial intelligence, operations research, datamining tec
