Abstract:

SYSTEMS & PROCESSES ENGINEERING CORPORATION 'SPEC) IS PROPOSING TO DEVELOP A MANEUVER SECURITY EXPERT PLANNING SYSTEM (MSEPS). MSEPS IS A HIGH PAYOFF MINE AND AIR DEFENSE BARRIER CONCEPT THAT ASSISTS COMMANDERS TO PLAN FOR THE SECURITY OF U.S. ARMY AND U.S. MARINE CORPS MANEUVER ELEMENTS, PROVIDING INCREASED ECONOMY OF FORCE AND FLEXIBILITY. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM INTEGRATES A GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM (GIS) AND KNOWLEDGE BASE APPLYING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) TECHNOLOGY TO ASSIST IN THE PLANNING FOR SECURITY OF MANEUVER ELEMENTS DRIVING DEEP INTO ENEMY REAR AREAS DURING AGGRESSIVE OFFENSIVE OPERATIONS. IN THE PHASE I PROGRAM, SPEC WILL: 1) DEMONSTRATE A MSEPS VISUAL PROTOTYPE ON A MACINTOSH 11 COMPUTER USING MACROMIND DIRECTOR TO PROVIDE SAMPLE SCREENS WITH ANIMATION OF A SAMPLE EXECUTION SCENARIO OF MSEPS; 2) CONDUCT A TRADE STUDY OF CANDIDATE GIS PACKAGES, AND KEY WEAPON SYSTEMS AND OTHER COUNTERMOBILITY SECURITY BARRIER DEVICES AND TECHNIQUES AVAILABLE FOR EMPLOYMENT BY MSEPS; AND 3) DEVELOP A DETAILED SYSTEM SPECIFICATION AND PHASE II IMPLEMENTATION PLAN. PHASE II PROGRAM WILL YIELD A MSEPS PROTOTYPE FOR FIELD EVALUATION BY DOD USERS. MSEPS TECHNOLOGY INSERTIONS WILL SUPPORT MULTI-ECHELON COMMAND AND CONTROL AND WEAPON SYSTEMS OPERATIONS. POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS INCLUDE PLACEMENT OF SENSORS TO AID IN DRUG INTERDICTION ACROSS NATIONAL BOUNDARIES; AND IN MARKET RESEARCH SECTOR TO IDENTIFY LOCATIONS FOR FAST FOOD OUTLETS, SERVICE STATIONS, SHOPPING MALLS, AND MARKET SEGMENTS; AND IN SITING AND CONSTRUCTION OF BUILDINGS, BRIDGES, ROADWAYS, TO MEET DIVERSE REGULATIONS, STANDARDS, SPECIFICATIONS, AND USER REQUIREMENTS.
