Abstract
This document is the first 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 in Naval Battle Management. It explains the characteristics of naval task groups in terms of structure and task work and discusses the implications of operating as a distributed force networked by information systems. To enable effective collaboration in the high-tempo tactical distributed environment of Naval Battle Management, it introduces a new collaboration paradigm based on three constructs: Creation and exploitation of dynamic collaboration circles for specific operational needs; Support to team processes that enable collaborative work; and Information transition across private workspaces designed for focused individual effort and public workspaces where information is shared and debated. By supporting collaborative processes, these constructs promote shared situation awareness, mutual understanding, and trust. This document provides the global conceptual framework for this work.
