The Human Interoperability Enterprise (HIE) Program examines the implications of human/ social -system interoperability across national and international trends per policy, operations, future concepts, and future technology and methodologies. The HIE Program addresses all areas of human interoperability including Irregular Warfare, Asymmetric Threats, Humanitarian Assistance, Disaster Relief, Public-Private Complex Teams, Operational Energy to Interagency Coordination and Collaboration.
The HIE Program:
- Investigates the processes used in effective social system networking and human-system interoperability;
- Researches the fundamental building blocks for cross cultural interoperability for rapid trust building, hastily formed human/social networks, operational and security advancement, and policy support,
- Researches innovative technology, approaches, and methodologies for understanding human behavior in various contexts such as,
- collective consciousness and social system networking
- behavioral psycho-metrics forensics for assessing cyber intrusion
- social networking and non-boundaries of cyberspace
- innovative cognitive technology or methodologies for deconstructing beliefs and values to identify indicators of drivers of behaviors
- DoD’s role in social networking and policy for humanitarian assistance
- Examines and bridges gaps between human and technology, methodologies, and policy by working to establish a collaborative network of military forces, policy makers, science and technology community, industry, non-government organizations and various government agencies.
- Maintains the HIE Working group; A think tank that addresses current and future issues involved in Public- Private partnerships for information sharing.
HIE Program results are employed to enhance leadership skills and introduce new ways to address the human element in DoD's transformation into the 21st Century. This is achieved through applying findings to other studies, publications, and lecture; course development; generating innovative approaches in areas such as, Irregular Warfare, Intelligence, and Disaster Relief; providing HIE support to other CTNSP programs such as Force Transformation and TIDES.
