Abstract:

Not Available One of the open research issues in the incorporation of battlefield stressors into CGF technology, involves the interaction of the external stressors with the personality characteristics of the individual war fighter. Further complicating this issue is the fact that the personality traits of an individual are influenced by the personality traits and the actions of other individuals (both friends and foes). Capturing this aspect within CGF technology is essential for producing realistic behaviors. In addition, these complex interactions must be represented across a range of stressor types in an efficient and user-friendly manner. Emergent simulations enabled by autonomous agents can be used to address this deficiency in CGF technology. Complex global behaviors of a group of agents can result from simple local interactions of these agents. Such a framework would be robust since it does not rely on rigidly scripted rules. It would also be more realistic since the interactions of agents could result in unpredictable behavior much like on the battlefield. We propose to develop one such autonomous agent model using a mathematical optimization approach which lends itself to the formulation of objective and constraint functions which can represent a wide variety of stressor models.
