This session will focus on how collaboration tools have proliferated across both commercial and military enterprises with the intuitive assumption that improved visualization and the transfer of information and ideas can only help decision making processes. Collaboration tool prototypes have been employed by operational forces with no hard metrics documenting improved team collaboration performance. An independent assessment is an essential component of the documentation of improved performance while performing common repeatable valid mission scenarios in a natural setting. Assessments must consider team knowledge building, knowledge interoperability, state of situational awareness, and overall mission effectiveness. In addition, they must facilitate the collection of support metrics and system state, such as speed of decision cycle, required bandwidth, and data source connectivity.
