Operators in mobile platforms must often cooperate with operators in other platforms in order to fulfill their tasks, for example in task-oriented special forces. This is only possible if the operator is able to perform platform interaction. One example of such a co-operation is resource sharing, where an operator exploits sensors on other platforms. This must occur in ways that these platforms allow. How such a strategy for allowance can be formulated in a technically feasible way is discussed in part 1 of this report. Complex combat platforms of different types - in a network centered defence force - have to be able to cooperate with each other in new ways. This requires a new type of command and control systems on the platform level, built upon common principles. Each individual platform might become a member in a team. New functions for platform interaction must be introduced, interaction must be able to perform between many different types of platforms and all types of interaction have to supervised by the operators. In order to shape these abilities, new super platform level and platform independent principles for platform interaction are required. The OODA-loop (Observe-Orient-Decide-Act) may be used as a bases for this type of systems. Part 2 in the report describes how it might be done.
