As various militaries move towards a vision of Network Centric Warfare and Network Centric Operations, multiple issues regarding information acquisition and presentation arise as one tries to use the full potential of a networked environment while overcoming the limitations imposed by the realities faced
by the warfighter. In such an environment, a user processes, communicates, and shares information electronically, creating a demand for intelligent software agents for information gathering and management. When a user must make critical decisions under time pressure, such an agent can anticipate the user’s
information needs, prefetch and present information to the user in an appropriate format at the right time. In this paper, we discuss some of the key challenges in designing unobtrusive information agents, and suggest directions for further research in order to overcome or mitigate these challenges.
