One important aspect of the I-Rescue development is to highlight the requirements regarding the collaborative\ud activities of planning and execution, considering a hierarchical structure of decision-making and a mixed initiative\ud style of interaction between users and systems. This paper discusses the design and implementation of I-Rescue and its use in a search and rescue domain where joint users, assisted by customised agents, are able to\ud perform complementary tasks
