Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations center on providing relevant situational understanding
to military commanders and analysts to facilitate decision-making for execution of mission tasks. However, limitations
exist in tactical-edge environments on the ability to disseminate digital materials to analysts and decision makers. This
work investigates novel methods to calculate of Value of Information tied to digital materials (termed information
objects) for consumer use, based on interpretation of mission specifications. Followed by a short survey of related VoI
calculation efforts, discussion is provided on mission-centric VoI calculation for digital materials via adoption of the preexisting
Missions and Means Framework model.
