The AFRL research programs for the Joint Battlespace Infosphere (JBI) and the Collaborative Enterprise Environment CEE) are the next steps in the evolution of information management from system-centric through network-centric to collaborative information-centric operations. JBI extends the concept of the network-centric system and provides capabilities for intelligent data transformation, information exchange, knowledge sharing, and processing. CEE is an open systems, agent-based, application independent framework that supports product and process modeling and resource workflow to facilitate advanced collaboration among geographically dispersed entities. This paper describes ongoing research efforts in applying distributed collaboration to JBI. The research addresses how CEE events can interact with JBI’s publish and subscribe functionality and how a JBI subscription can trigger a CEE distributed resource workflow. The workflow processes the information, configures the data for collaboration between humans and other resources, and publishes the results of the collaboration back to JBI. A fully integrated CEE JBI environment allows near real-time data to be used in advanced resource collaborations to bring the right information to the right user at the right time.
