Integrating sensors and grid computing provides a way to gather, process and model real-time information from the environment for informed decision-support and timely actions, proactive or reactive, to events. We create a collaborative sensor grid framework to support the integration of a sensor grid with collaboration and other grids. The framework includes a grid builder tool for discovering and managing grid services and remote, distributed sensors. It provides a real-time collaborative client to enable distributed stakeholders to have a consistent view of displayed sensor streams. We illustrate the versatility of the framework by constructing a robot- based customizable application for shared situational awareness.
