Resilient Environment for Teams of Agents Making Decisions (RE-TEAM)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Submarine commanders must make rapid decisions to carry out increasingly complex missions, while sifting through ever larger masses of information. The scope and complexity of submarine missions has grown such that submarines are now expected to fully participate in net-centric environments and support asymmetric warfare. Concurrently, the rate of information delivery has outpaced the capacity of command and control (C2) systems to prioritize and filter it. It also exceeds the abilities of human decision makers to determine whether they have the information they needor to make sense of the information they have. Given that advances in remote sensors, networking, communications, and computing are generating even greater information flows, naval C2 systems must provide three key capabilities: (1) enabling distributed planning and execution of missionsas well as specific tasks to accomplish the missions; (2) supporting efficient collaboration between teams onboard and off-board naval platforms; and (3) analyzing trade-offs and generate alternative courses of action (COAs). To address these needs, we propose to design and demonstrate a Resilient Environment for Teams of Agents Making Decisions (RE-TEAM). RE-TEAM will provide an adaptive, agent-based solution for supporting team decision making built on a resilient, multidimensional model of the interaction and task dynamics of relevant teams.
