The International Technology Alliance offers an open research environment in which leading US and UK companies and universities can collaborate. It will also fuse the best aspects of the US Army's Collaborative Technology Alliances and UK Ministry of Defense Defense Technology Centres on an international scale. A key ITA goal is to perform basic research in network-centric coalition decision making across four technical areas, one of which is distributed coalition planning and decision making. Intelligent systems will likely play a big role in this area.
