Military organizations, in support of both domestic and internationally deployed operations, require enhanced information sharing, exchange and coordination between nations or government agencies. In particular, crisis or emergency management situations require a timely collective response. Significant research has been achieved for a few years to provide military decision makers and operators in command centres with information and knowledge management tools and services that help gain situation awareness, such as enterprise knowledge portals. In this paper, we describe the concepts and technologies that have been investigated as part of the JCDS 21 Technology Demonstration Project to provide military operators and decision makers with a command portal environment that supports enhanced situational awareness. To achieve this, a set of information and knowledge management services has been implemented and lays the foundation of an advanced command portal. These services have been incorporated in the web-based Command and Control Collaborative Environment (C2CE) that also integrates command and control web-based applications and is connected to external applications to support planning, monitoring of resources, and execution management.
