Military intelligence communities need to collect, process and disseminate information as quickly and efficiently as possible, for example in answering requests for information by commanders. Currently, the flow of information between the field and intelligence communities is hampered by disparities in the integration of the various components of the information chain. We propose to create a hub for information exchange called SOPHIE, where information from heterogeneous sources comes together. This hub proactively notifies military users to relevant information based on their profile. In addition, users can search or browse available information products and consult experts to receive quick answers to their information requests. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014.
