Agent-Based Knowledge Enablers for the Unit of Action
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The Army's Unit of Action (UA) is part of a joint team that is decisive in any operation, against any level threat, in any environment. This team must be strategically and operationally responsive, and be able to change patterns of operations faster than the enemy can respond. To meet these goals, it relies on the fusion of information from the Battlefield Functional Areas (BFAs), as well as disparate data from joint partners. In Phase II of this SBIR, the DAC Team will extend the intelligent agent toolkit for Network Centric Warfare (NCW) developed during Phase I. This toolkit enables data from disparate information sources to be translated, coordinated, and fused in such a way that commanders can better respond to the Commander's Critical Information Requirements (CCIRs) associated with a UA. This objective will be realized through three major activities: 1) extending the CCIR processing techniques developed in Phase I; 2) developing agent behavior suitable for the mobile ad-hoc NCW environment on workstation, tablet, and PDA hardware platforms; and 3) validating and refining the approach through exercises and interactions with the warfighter at Ft. Bragg, Ft. Benning, and Ft. Hood.
