Abstract
Using our 50+ person-years of experience with business process (BP) modeling, BPEL, SOA, and HCI design, we developed a proof-of-concept of a real-time battle management solution for MDA that will coordination with multiple dispersed and disparate weapon platforms in achieving accurate and reliable kill results for layered Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD). The proof-of-concept is in the form of two computer programs. The first is a battle management adaptive planner using the concepts of an anticipatory learning classifier system. The second is a battle management aid that uses the output from the planner program. The two programs are part of a design of a system to globally optimize weapon-target solutions across the theater, regional, and global levels, but allow for weapon systems to retain control and responsibility for their own individual fire-control systems and endgames. We can dynamically align data models and messages from net-centric services via fuzzy logic, inference, and cognitive learning to overcome information disparities, unlike today's static, not reconfigurable, data. Our techniques produce what we call Reconfigurable Defense Designs, that enhance today's Defense Designs, which are the plans that result from deliberate (or contingency/crisis) planning.
