The handling of Open Source Information in the field of the domain "Cyber" is one of the future challenges for the Central Documentation (CentDoc) of the Austrian National Defence Academy. The CentDoc is responsible for "Open Source Information-Processing" and the Research and Development topic "Documentation and Knowledge Management" of the Austrian Ministry of Defence and Sports. Under the perspective of finding new solutions to develop knowledge and to support decision-making in organizations with relevant, high-quality Open Source Information (OSInfo) and Research and Development products, the "Cyber Documentation and Research Center" ("CDRC") was founded in 2014. This paper will give an overview of the present challenges of OSInfo and new perspectives of solutions to solve current problems and create new ideas. A so-called "High Quality Crowd" and further on a "Crowd Network" will be presented as a new method for crowd OSInfo with a description of goals, organization, processes, and products of the CDRC as a horizon scanning center for cyber security. The surprising results and experiences of this project did challenge not only the traditional working methods but also the required new ways of thinking.
