Agent-based Collaborative Combat Simulation Tool
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
We believe that the requirements of the solicitation can best be met using autonomous software agents. Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI) has been developing the theory and practice of software agents for over a decade and we are recognized leaders in this area. Our primary application of software agents has been for agent-based simulations and we have built agent-based simulations of many large distributed systems. We will adapt our past work to implement the Collaborative Virtual Combat Simulation. The work herein proposed also describes how we will integrate software agent-based real-time decision aids into our simulation using agent-based game theoretic interactions. In addition to a simulation, our systems can pro actively recommend specific courses of action based on agent interactions aimed at optimization. Our agent-based simulation is built on top of our agent infrastructure called Cybele. Cybele is available Open Source and has many users. There has not been a confirmed bug report for over six months. Cybele is also HLA compliant, and fully supports man in the loop and hardware in the loop testing. Cybele is a "light" infrastructure and Cybele nodes can execute on a hand-held PDA. Our agent-based simulations execute simultaneously on any number of computers.
