There is a need for effective and efficient dynamic management of scarce high-demand/low-density ISR collection assets. This paper presents a doctrinal analysis of ISR management which leads to the conclusion that a key role in the developing of dynamic ISR support solutions to dynamic ISR support requests is played by the ISTAR Manager within Collection Operations Management. It develops the hypothesis that visualisation, situational awareness and planning (aka decision support) tools could support the ISTAR Manager in the more effective and efficient development of ISR support solutions. Finally, it describes the experimental capability developed by Dstl, together with a number of industrial partners, to test this hypothesis.
