Abstract
All-source analysts collaborate with each other on various information requirements. They receive different types of information from various collators, integrate and relate those information items to produce intelligence, and then share the new intelligence items with their peers. In this report, the authors describe Sharik (SHAring Resources, Information, and Knowledge), a web-based tool aimed at supporting collaborative sensemaking among all-source intelligence analysts in distributed command and control centers. The primary goal of this tool is to support analysts in producing, and more importantly sharing, new intelligence pieces with their teammates while retaining a high situational awareness of the intelligence production’s status. Sharik’s features support different stages of the intelligence cycle including direction, collection, processing, and dissemination.
