Abstract
"With the need to produce simulation environments that are distributed and that combine live, virtual and constructive elements, there is a need for the constructive entities (SSR's) within the EADTB to act/react in a much more realistic way. Humanbehaviors are now routinely modeled as part of the modeled "system" within simulations. What is needed, therefore is a more robust method of collecting, storing and correlating information so that the human elements of the SSR model can act/react much morerealistically, keeping up with future needs to have "intelligent" constructive elements within EADTB. This proposal describes a concept for using an innovative new hybrid Artificial Intelligence (AI) architecture based on the use of conceptual graphscoupled with intelligent software agents to create a highly maintainable, robust method for creating validated, standardized SSR's for EADTB. The Phase I program will lay the groundwork for full-scale development of a newer, more capable and moremaintainable Synthetic System Representation scheme for EADTB. This architecture will have a tremendous amount of uses in the commercial sector for uses where intelligent software is needed such as process control and decision aids."
