Not Available With more military engagements focusing on suppression of rebel and guerilla insurgences in developing nations and politically unstable climates, the need for well-trained troops in close urban combat becomes increasingly vital. The nature of the battlefield changes dramatically in an urban setting, due to the complexities introduced by the environment. To meet the demanding simulation-based training requirements of the DoD in these urban battlespaces, we propose to develop a set of Intelligent Hostile Urban Threat (IHUT) agents to be implemented within DoD training simulators. Our proposed IHUT agents will comprise the integration of two software components: 1) a reactive intelligent agent representing the key human activities of visual perception, event detection, information processing, situation assessment and procedurally-driven decision-making; and 2) a physical model of dismounted infantry soldiers capable of emulating realistic movement and action within a simulated urban combat environment. Our proposed approach to the development of the IHUT agents will provide for realistic representation of human movement through the simulated environment in real time, and reflect skill-based reactive behavior in that environment as well as higher level cognitive task behaviors of situation assessment and planning to accomplish key MOUT mission objectives.
