Abstract

The emergence of new doctrine is enabling security, stabilization, transition and reconstruction (SSTR) operations to become a core U.S. military mission. These operations are now given equal priority to combat operations. The immediate goal in SSTR is to provide the local populace with security, restore essential services, and meet humanitarian needs. The long-term goal is to help develop indigenous capacity for securing and providing essential services, therefore, many SSTR operations are best performed by indigenous groups with support from foreign agencies and professionals. Large scale disasters, however, are an example where military support can enhance the value of SSTR operations. Without the means to effectively coordinate groups across the civil-military boundary, basic assistance and relief operations may be severely impeded. This paper will describe a conceptual portal, ShareInfoForPeople, which incorporates advanced Information and Communication Technology to enable collaboration, coordination and information sharing across the civil-military boundary in support of SSTR.
