In highly dynamic and heterogeneous environments, such as coalition missions or joint operations can be, providing commanders with decision making support requires a through understanding of processes involved and the development of underlying knowledge models upon which reasoning mechanisms can be based. This paper presents the construction of ONTO-CIF, a formal ontology created to support intelligence activities. ONTO-CIF is a core ontology, developed by following a methodology based on textual documents, which allows us to accomplish a satisfactory accuracy level in terms of domain coverage. The paper also illustrates several scenarios using ONTO-CIF to support intelligence analysis, a central task of military domain.
