Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; This research utilizes the JTAC mission and applies the VIRT concept of smartpush information delivery. Current efforts within DOD focus on achieving a virtual world where all information becomes available through the GIG. This pull approach to information delivery does not adequately address the value of information and the absolute requirement to deliver it to the lowest levels when and where needed. The current DOD enterprise-wide mentality of IT implementation does not focus on where best to leverage IT in order to achieve an immediate increase in capability. VIRT, as demonstrated in this research, provides an excellent place to start and a great opportunity to utilize technology in an effective way without taking a decade for implementation.

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; Faculty Showcase News Article; In an age of information overload, students and faculty at NPS are working on eliminating the excess and providing only the most valuable information to Marines in the field. A project known as Valued Information at the Right Time, or VIRT, aims to sift through the constant flow of information streaming to decision makers in order to identify mission-critical information.

Chris Gunderson is a Research Associate at the Naval Postgraduate School. He is the principal investigator of the Open Enterprise Information System (OEIS) research initiative. This project sponsored by the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and executed in the Northern Virginia. The project objective is to help the government improve its flawed information technology acquisition process through four key activities: Establish a collaborative network of government, industry, and academic experts who have succeeded at some aspect of OEIS; Study Internet successful stories and distill the lessons learned; Embed lessons learned into familiar government acquisition artifacts; Work with early adopting pilot projects to verify, validate, refine, and document best practices; PISR PLA is a Military Intelligence application of the commercial best practice for optimizing business objectives, via plug-and-play open systems. PISR PLA is optimized to deliver Valued Information at the Right Time. (Dr Rick Hayes-Roth led the NPS team that delivered PISR PLA.)

Defense and homeland security leaders have focused recently on the problems of fielding networks to enable rapid decision-making and agile responses to various crises. Mostly, they have concentrated on the lowest levels of networks, namely the hardware and software to enable bits to flow from senders to reveivers. However, most crises require a different approach, one that emphasizes the highest levels of network design. At these levels, the problems we face are: Who needs What information, and How does that information Find them? In addition, because people in crises have so little time, we must also answer this question: How do we assure receivers are not glutted by a deluge of low-value data and consumed by attendant low-level tasks? Our answers to these questions employ dynamic context and operator requirement to assure high value information flows quickly where it's needed and is processed promptly by the recipients. We call this approach Valued Informaton at the Right Time (VIRT). Initial studies have shown that this approach reduces the volume of bits by several orders of magnitude. It also raises the productivity of every operator enormously by assuring each can give immediate attention to truly valued information. A VIRT perspective leads us to see networks as information supply chains. Well-designed supply chains will dramatically improve the performance of hastily formed networks (HFNs).

Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; In this thesis I examine the theory of Valued Information at the Right Time (VIRT) and the benefits its implementation can provide to the Navy's best example of accurate information-sharing, the Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC). The primary premise of VIRT is that only information which has some value to the user and could impact mission accomplishment should be allowed to flow from a source to the user. If information has little or no value to the individual it is destined for, it must simply be regarded as overhead and should not be sent/received. Using a simple simulation I show in this thesis that VIRT has the potential to provide benefits of orders of magnitude versus a non-VIRT implementation. The Navy's CEC program represents a premier air track data sharing mechanism. It enables ships augmented with this capability and residing on the network to share fire control quality information on the individual parameters of air tracks such as location, course, speed, and altitude. There is a place for VIRT implementation within CEC. Such an implementation can prove beneficial both to CEC as an internal user of information and also as a supplier to external entities of its valuable track information. Finally...

Through the lens of hindsight, this paper examines how their theories and predictions have held up. The authors find that the tenets of NCW have proven valid. Despite pro forma policy to the contrary, the US Defense community has substantially eschewed Cebrowski et al. in actual practice. Ironically...

AFCEA-GMU C4I Center Symposium: Critical Issues in C4I, George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, AFCEA; Data sharing is today's principal Information Technology challenge. All sectors—commercial, government, academic, and military—seek improved information exchange to achieve operational benefits, whether in the form of greater profits, improved situational awareness, intellectual advancement, or ability to respond to threats endangering respective interests. Nations and organizations within and across nations have set forth policies to promote greater data sharing, but often without empowering or enabling change agents to introduce measurably better capabilities. While progress is being made in some quarters, in others there is almost a counter-reaction where organizations are closing in on themselves, perpetuating traditional closed pockets of valuable information, even if sometimes having the appearance of adhering to the new policies. The advances are coming in fits and starts, resembling chaotic self- organizing systems, but with no overriding pressure to bring about incremental adaptive improvements. This paper describes an evolutionary management approach that addresses this fundamental failure in many current programs to achieve greater efficiency in data sharing. We advocate adoption of corresponding policy guidelines by the DoD.
