Abstract:

"AIS proposes to investigate a COA Knowledge Acquisition (KA) tool that blends a new AI calculus with a developing visualization technology to extend a promising prototype (FOX-GA) to the SASO/ABCS environment. The proposed Course of Action EvaluationSystem (CACES) enables a domain expert to readily encapsulate the SASO environment and create effective COAs for an arbitrarily collection of missions and doctrine. An initial approach, using Fuzzy Logic (FL), extends the evolutionary computationalstructure of FOX-GA to accommodate a fitness function that embraces SASO missions and doctrine. By coupling newly developing visualization technology from the University of Arizona with this augmented decision support product, AIS prototypes a system withinnovative capabilities. Supplementing this solution, AIS proposes a second investigation of the utility of multi-agent-based simulation in approximating a complex systems theory solution to COA analysis. The underlying technology for the COA KnowledgeAcquisition(KA)tool is applicable to the commercial environment as well. It requires a differing set of variables, but the process remains the same. The benefit to the military planning process is most significant. Planners will now have at theirdisposal a planning aid that allows them to readily approximate the environment in which stability and support operations will be conducted and to create effective COAs for anticipated missions/requireme
