Abstract: Developing and sustaining situational awareness is an enduring challenge for todayĆ¢??s Warfighter. Situational awareness, or knowledge of the immediate present environment, is a daunting task considering the plethora of data sources available. The US Army Research Laboratory has confronted this challenge by researching and developing the Value of Information (VoI) metric. In this report, we discuss a prototype system that pushes VoI beyond simulations and into the field environment where further research can be conducted.
