Course of Action (COA) development is a critical iterative process that helps military staff and leaders make decisions as they plan for their missions. The COA development relies on data that may be only hours, or in some cases, minutes, old. Accessing this data and incorporating it into the decision making process can result in huge consequences on second and third order effects.
Combining cognitive computing technologies with smart decision management tools intelligently automates this processes to aid data analysis for decision making. The use of these technologies allows us to create ‘always on virtual assistants’ that can intelligently automate and accurately return data required for the best decision to aid the warfighter.
i3solutions created the Joint Collaboration Information Platform (JCIP) which is developed on a suite of IBM tools including IBM’s Watson Explorer. This powerful tool brings data manipulation to the user as the user requires it.
