Not Available Rapid developments in information technology and the associated application and assimilation of this technology provide a tremendous opportunity to enhance the mission planning and evaluation capabilities of Air Force commanders. An architecture employing multiple intelligent software agents can facilitate enhanced mission planning by automating: the collection and structuring of relevant tactical C4I data; the development, simulation, and evaluation of appropriate mission plans; and the assessment of the current and potential tactical situational states. Here, we propose the development of an Agent-based Mission Planning and Evaluation environment (AMPLE) for Air Force tactical missions. The innovation is the incorporation of several synergistic characteristics of multi-agent systems: the structuring of combat data in semantic structures that support complex cognitive processes, such as planning and assessment; the use of agent situatedness and reactiveness to simulate and evaluate alternative mission plans; the dynamic assessment of potential tactical situations created through planning and agent interaction; and the dynamic mission progress visualization and the associated plan editing capabilities. We see considerable potential for this approach in enhancing existing Air Force tactical mission planning systems and addressing future information dominated battlespace requirements.
