Abstract Coalition partners must share information to work together. Models of information sharing assume that it is a linear, one-way process. As part of a larger project, we studied information sharing in military coalitions. Interviews of 47 officers in NATO R&D organizations showed that one piece of information was often traded for another. This is characteristic of an information market. Security regulations make information a scarce resource, although trust may allow the regulations to be waived. Our observations have consequences for the military Network Enabled Capabilities community in their desire to migrate to a “need to share” security principle. Failing to find a suitable process model in the literature, we outline requirements and identify two possible starting points for modelling the information sharing process in military coalitions.
