Abstract:

Soar Technology proposes to improve the efficacy of existing combat simulations by introducing a more realistic computer-generated adversary (OPFOR). To do this, we introduce GAMBIT - a novel system for dynamically generating and implementing asymmetric tactics supported by the use of genetic algorithms. Using GAMBIT, asymmetric tactics are generated offline given the initial conditions of a scenario and feedback from past simulation runs. The resultant tactic is then converted into a plan, which in turn feeds goal and sequence information to dynamic, intelligent behavior models of OPFOR that will ultimately execute the tactic. The use of GAMBIT for generating and executing asymmetric tactics will not only reduce the manpower required to mimic adversaries during training exercises, but will also deliver a wider variety of novel, unexpected insurgent behavior than possible by manual tactics generation.
