Abstract:

THE ARMY WILL ULTIMATELY EMPLOY TACTIAL IMAGERY/INFORMATION PROCESSING SYSTEM TO ASSIST COMMANDERS BY INTEGRATING THE BATTLEFIELD SITUATION WITH CHANGING TERRAIN AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS. TERRAIN REASONING IS A MAJOR FACTOR INVOLVING SENSOR LOCATIONS, MOBILITY, ROUTE LOCATIONS, CHOKE POINTS, TARGET AREAS OF INTEREST, FIREPOWER RESOURCE ALLOCATION, EVENT DETECTION, FUEL CONSUMPTION, AND LOGISTICAL COORDINATION. A CRITICAL ADJUNCT TO TERRAIN REASONING AND THE BRIGADE INTELLIGENCE FUNCTION IS SENSOR PLACEMENT TO DETECT THREAT FORCE ALONG ANTICIPTED APPROACHES. THIS PROGRAM INTEGRATES ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNOLOGY WITH THE GRASS GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM (GIS) TO SUPPORT EXPERT SYSTEM PLACEMENT OF SENSORS (SPS). SPS WILL BE DEVELOPED UNDER THE UNIX SYSTEM V RELEASE 3 OPERATING SYSTEM ENVIRONMENT USING "C" LANGUAGE PRODUCTION SYSTEM (CLIPS) AS THE AI DEVELOPMENT TOOL. SENSORS CONSIDERED ARE MTI RADAR, REMBASS - INFRARED, ACOUSTIC, SEISMIC, & MAGNETIC - AND WAM (WIDE AREA MINES). APPLICATION OF WAM TECHNOLOGY INCLUDES THE REMOTE RECONNAISSANCE PACKAGE (RRP) SENSOR, DARPA C2 MASTER CONTROL UNITS, AND SPEC EXPERT SYSTEM MANAGER. BENEFITS TO THE ARMY ARE (1) BRIGADE BATTLE PLAN FOR SENSOR PLACEMENT, (2) KNOWLEDGE BASED DECISION SUPPORT FOR EFFICIENT USE OF SENSOR ASSETS, AND (3) EXPERT SYSTEM TO PREDICT SENSOR REQUIREMENTS, ALLOCATE ASSETS, EXPLOIT CONSTRAINTS, AND EVALUATE ALTERNATE INTELLIGENCE SUPPORT PLANS.
