Abstract
This document is the second in a series on system-mediated collaboration concepts and functionalities for COmbat Resource ALlocation Support (CORALS), a prototype that supports the command team of a naval task group/force in Naval Battle Management. To enable effective collaboration in the high-tempo tactical distributed environment of Naval Battle Management, a new collaboration paradigm was introduced based on three constructs: (1) Creation and exploitation of dynamic collaboration circles for specific operational needs; (2) Support to team processes that enable collaborative decision making; and (3) Information transition from private workspaces designed for focused individual effort to public workspaces where information is shared and debated. This report is dedicated to the concept of Collaboration Circles. It is argued that collaboration circles can enhance the efficiency of communication in naval task groups by creating new communication lines and diminishing the quantity while improving the quality of the information exchanged.
