The ability to provide an accurate and integrated picture of the battle-space in order to support command level decision making is a crucial component of the modem advanced warfare management system. This ability can be significantly improved through the introduction of collaborative decision support tools. In this proposal Datamat Systems Research, Inc. (Datamat) presents the development of a class of such tools to support command post of the future. The proposed approach is based on (i) an application of distributed, hierarchical decision-making nodes, (ii) a mechanism for information abstraction/generalization, and (iii) a voting scheme for decision-making predictions. The implemented system is expected to be extremely effective in the new, information age nature of warfare domains where information sources are vastly dispersed in space and time. It directly supports pattern of operations defined in the Army/Joint vision 2010.
