Collective command and control civil-military operations impose a strong requirement for organizations and people to work collaboratively and to interact with information more efficiently. Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) technology has been evolving at a great pace during the last decade, and many novel HCI concepts and tools have become of interest to support not only analysts deployed in command centers but also warfighters deployed in the field. This will have an impact on how intelligence officers will operate in the future. In this regard, Defence R&D Canada has undertaken a major initiative to look forward into Future Intelligence Analysis Capabilities (FIAC). This study reports on HCI trends and applicability to support the FIAC and collective command and control in general. Topics of interest include ubiquitous computing, multimodal interaction, multi-touch tables/surfaces, large group displays, flexible displays, personal device assistants / smart phones, intelligent software assistants, biometry, brain/neural interfaces, collaboration tools / telepresence, smart room environments, head-mounted displays, mixed reality, and advanced HCI concepts and techniques.
