Abstract

SHAI, in cooperation with our subcontractor, OPNET Technologies, Inc., propose to continue our development of an innovative Artificial Intelligence (AI) toolkit interface to OPNET's Modeler and other networking COTS products, to configure and optimizenetwork configuration and operations in the field. This Intelligent Network Configuration Optimization Toolkit (INCOT) will allow for rapid design and optimization of communications networks without requiring the user to have programming skills orknowledge of the underlying OPNET network simulation tools. Because developing INCOT represents a challenge, we utilized and propose to continue to pursue an integrated approach drawing upon a broad range of AI techniques, user interface, andvisualization technologies. There is currently a great need for any solution that will dramatically reduce the complexity of network configuration due to the great quantity and diversity of information that must be analyzed, as well as the short decisioncycles.The resulting system will provide the capability for less experienced network engineers to perform efficient and effective network engineering and ongoing operations, with the end result being reduced costs, increased operational efficiency, and improvedrobustness. We will build upon the Phase I results, including the phase I prototype, and iteratively build a more complete and robust Phase II prototype.
