For effective decision making, military Command and Control (C2) requires robust situational understanding produced by translating multi-INT intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) into actionable intelligence. These information products must be delivered according to the evolving decision needs of dynamic mission contexts. However, traditional ISR pipelines rely upon highly distributed analysis and processing, exploitation, and dissemination that reduce coordination between operators, analysts, and Commanders. The Dual Node Decision Wheels (DNDW) architecture was previously described as a novel approach toward integrating analytic and decision-making processes. In this paper, we extend DNDW with a technical description of components in this framework, combining structures of the Dual Node Network (DNN) for Information Fusion and Resource Management with a variation on Rasmussen’s Decision Ladder to provide guidance on constructing information systems that better serve decision-making requirements.
