ANALYZE THE SUBMARINE WEAPONS, EMPLOYMENT DOCTRINE, AND WEAPON CONTROL OPERATOR RESPONSIBILITIES USING THE EVALUATION CRITERIA ESTABLISHED IN (2) TO DEVELOP CANDIDATE APPLICATIONS FOR AI SOLUTION. 4. DEVELOP A CONCEPTUAL SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE WHICH WOULD INCLUDE: A. FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS.BASELINE FUNCTIONAL ARCHITECTURE. B. IDENTIFICATION OF CANDIDATE AI TECHNOLOGIES AND THEIR APPLICATION IN THE PROTOTYPE SYSTEM. 5. PREPARE DETAILED PHASE II PLANS WHICH WOULD INCLUDE: A. REVISED ANDCOMPLETE PROTOTYPE FUNCTIONAL SPECIFICATION. B. PROTOTYPE SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT. THE RESULTS OF PHASE I WILL BE SUMMARIZED IN A REPORT CONTAINING:1. A PRIORITIZED LIST OF OPERATOR-INTENSIVE WEAPONS EMPLOYMENT SITUATIONS THAT MERIT AN INTELLIGENT COMPUTER-BASED OPERATIONAL ADVISOR. 2. A DESCRIPTION OF THE ANALYSIS APPROACH AND EVALUATION CRITERIA USED TO DEVELOP THE LIST IN (1). 3. A CONCEPTUAL SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE DESCRIBING THE FUNDIMENTAL EXPERT SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS, CANDIDATE FIRE CONTROL TECHNIQUES AND THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLEGENCE FOR DATA FUSION.
