Title: Adaptable Cognitive Decision-Making System
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: F33615-01-M-1962
Award Amount: $64,996.00


The proposed adaptable cognitive decision-making system fuses multiple sensors and provides to commanders with relevant and timely information for controlling military operations. The innovations of this project include: 1) development of a fuzzy logicbased data association algorithm for solving complicated multitarget-multisensor tracking problems using inexact inputs received from diverse sensors; 2) development of an Object-Oriented Bayesian networks (OOBNs) for providing a high-level genericarchitecture for situation and threat assessment; 3) development of engagement decision aid algorithm using genetic algorithms; 4) testing, demonstration and evaluation of the performance of the adaptable cognitive decision-making system. The proposedsystem not only takes advantage of innovative individual methodologies but also, more significantly, emphasizes the synergism among all the subsystems to assure overall performance of the decision-making system. The deliverables of this project include aproduct entitled Adaptive Cognitive Decision-Making System. The effectiveness of the proposed techniques will be demonstrated on a fully integrated prototype at the end of Phase I.The developed techniques will result in the commercial product: AdaptiveCognitive Decision-Making System. Airline pilots, power station operators, air defense tactical operations center commanders, military commanders, manufacturing plant managers and others will be able to take advantage of the applications resulting fromthis project.
