This paper reviews collaborative technologies from cutting-edge research projects that support the intelligence analysis. Using the collaboration in knowledge management literature as reference point, a content analysis of representative documents of intelligence collaboration systems reveals three major components of collaborative technologies (knowledge discovery, decision-making tools, and collaborative environment), together with the dimensions of agents and time. The empirical-based taxonomy applied to intelligence collaboration work is demonstrated. The potential areas of application of question representation in information retrieval and knowledge-based systems, and the applicability of a collaborative information retrieval search tool as inputs to decision-making tools are discussed.
