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. Sharik (SHAring Resources, Information, and Knowledge) is a web-based tool aimed at supporting collaborative sensemaking among all-source intelligence analysts in distributed command and control centers. The tool has been designed, developed, and evaluated at DRDC Toronto. 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. In this report, the authors describe the final design and development process of Sharik 3.0. The report was prepared by the University of Toronto Engineering students through their University of Toronto Institute for Multidisciplinary Design & Innovation (UT-IMDI) Capstone Design Project course.
