Abstract:

USE OF DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING IN NAVY SYSTEMS IS INCREASING. DISTRIBUTED OPERATING SYSTEMS (DOS) PROVIDE THE ADVANTAGES OF DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING TO USER APPLICATIONS. REQUIREMENTS FOR REALTIME PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY/FAULT TOLERANCE, AND SECURITY MUST BE ADDRESSED BY A DOS. APPLICATION OF DOS TECHNOLOGY IS A COMPLICATED TASK. A KNOWLEDGE-BASED ASSIST WILL FACILITATE THE USE OF DISTRIBUTEDOPERATING SYSTEMS IN NAVY APPLICATIONS. THREE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF A KNOWLEDGE-BASED DOS ASSISTANT: (1) DEVELOP A REFERENCE MODEL FOR DOS USAGE; (2) SHOW THAT DOS USAGE KNOWLEDGE IS AMENABLE TO KNOWLEDGE-BASED TECHNIQUES; AND (3) SHOW THAT GENERIC AND SPECIFIC DOS KNOWLEDGE CAN BE INTEGRATED. IN PHASE I THREE OBJECTIVES WILL BE ADDRESSED BY: DEVELOPING A DOS REFERENCE MODEL; DEFINING THE SCOPE AND STRUCTURE OF THE DOS USAGE KNOWLEDGE-BASE; DEVELOPING RULES FOR SELECTION OF REAL-TIME SCHEDULINGALGORITHMS; AND DEVELOPING RULE REFINEMENT TECHNIQUES TO ENSURE CONSISTENCY AND INHERITANCE AMONG DIFFERENT LEVELS OF KNOWLEDGE. PHASE I RESEARCH WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EXISTING RESULTS IN KNOWLEDGE-BASED DESIGN ASSISTANTS FROM PREVIOUS SBIR PROJECTS PERFORMED FOR THE NAVY AND NASA.
