[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Development of dependable high-assurance systems requires policies and standards essential for improving human interoperability
among collaborating individuals and organizations. Such systems facilitate unfettered strategic communication flow to all
the stakeholders, while supporting intelligent interfaces in a manner that reinforces the collaboration through cooperative
and coordinated cognitive activities of the participants. In essence, these activities elucidate a group sense makingprocess that allows creation/recreation of distributed and similar knowledge among group members through sharing and interpreting
of information. This chapter elaborates on key human interoperability enterprise policy challenges and the role of coordinated
human behavior and human cognition for developing high-assurance systems. In addition, the chapter provides a roadmap for
developing an interoperability policy framework and engineering economically viable high-assurance systems to support missions
where people play a key role.
