Abstract: This report describes the step-by-step process for the setup and presentation of the Battlefield Information Processing Branchâ??s Intelligent Command and Control Demonstration. The demonstration integrates applications pertaining to the basic research supporting the Information Systems Experimentation Environment. The system being demonstrated shows the integration of various sensors, analyst tools, and Internet of Things systems sharing information across the US military services (Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines) and delivering the appropriate information to the end user. Value of Information (VoI) is used for filtering information to avoid inundating the end user with more information than necessary. The demonstration illustrates information flowing from the sensors/analyst to the end user; however, the information can also flow from the end user back to the analyst. The information from each military service is federated, since we may not need to share all information among the other military services. Federation provides interoperability between command and control (C2) systems and policies that govern information exchange within C2 systems. Examples of both VoI and federation are demonstrated.
