Knowledge-Based Doctrine Tool
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Soldiers using the ABCS systems do not have on-line access to doctrinal publications and context sensitive tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPS) to aid them in their mission planning process. These TTPs should support the users current task by retrieving information based on the force affiliation and situation. Doctrine, missions, policies, and strategies are some of the considerations in generating these mission and task specific TTPS. The focus of this effort is to address the knowledge representation and user interface requirements for storing, retrieving, and synthesizing information based on a specific task for a given force. Considerations during the storage, retrieval, and synthesis of the information are the force affiliation and situation. The TTPs generated support, tactical, peacekeeping, and/or humanitarian operations. This Phase I proposal offers an excellent opportunity to focus on how knowledge-based TTPs can be extracted from a wide variety of sources stored and presented to the user in the military decision-making process (MDMP). These knowledge-based tools enable the user to manipulate data and information by displaying, entering, storing, exchanging, and processing data, information, knowledge, and experience. The storyboards are developed using computer-based training authorware technology and integrate office automation technology. BENEFITS: The research done in Phase I benefits U.S. Army systems by providing a knowledge representation and screen designs for tools that integrate doctrine, strategy, and experience into the mission planning process. In addition, AIS plans to actively pursue this representation in it's commercial Java-based C3I applications (WebC3I) product line which in turn will become available in other military systems that use this product.
