Abstract

Modern multiorganizational coalitions can bring diverse sets of capabilities, assets, and information sources to bear on complex and dynamic operations. However, successfully completing these operations places demands on the trust between coalition partners. When it's necessary to rely on other partners, decision makers must be able to make rapid and effective trust assessments and decisions. Here, the authors focus on coalition information acquisition and discuss mechanisms for assessing trust and arriving at decisions about how to act when trust can be supplemented by controls. They also discuss future directions for these systems and highlight outstanding challenges.
