We present research with regard to a world modeling component called Object-Oriented World Model (OOWM) in order to perform High-Level Information Management (HLIM) in Joint ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance). The OOWM allows to structure a priori available domain knowledge as well as current information gathered, e.g., according to specific collection and exploitation tasks, in an object-oriented way, i.e., by storing all available information in a structure which explicitly represents state, properties and relations of the relevant objects in the environment. It serves as a central information hub for HLIM components like High-Level Data Fusion (HLDF) modules and, by the employment of a domain model, it allows establishing a common understanding of terms. The OOWM concept supplements the CSD (Coalition Shared Data) concept which is the agreed state-of-the-art approach for interoperable information sharing in Joint ISR. In this publication, a special focus is placed on using current information given in form of formal exploitation reports. Based on this, we also present a new concept called Object-Oriented Reporting (OOR) which corresponds to a version of formal reporting being even more suitable for and closely related to the OOWM approach than current formal exploitation reports already are.
