Adaptive Methods proposes to define, design and develop innovative approaches, methods and software Tactical Decision Aids (TDAs) to evaluate suitability and likelihood of opposing force (OPFOR) Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) threat operations. This project will provide an innovative Threat Suitability TDA that uses fuzzy logic algorithms to define, develop and evaluate threat suitability. Determining the suitability for an OPFOR threat in a naval environment requires Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis; these methods can be thought of as a process that combines and transforms spatial and aspatial input data into a resultant output decision. We are extending this paradigm to include a temporal dimension as a specific type of aspatial domain. The algorithm will utilize all available sources and types of relevant data, to include environmental, historical, intelligence estimates and tactical situation; and harmonize disparate data representations by transliterating or rendering that data into a common geo-temporal representation as needed. The projects key deliverable will define concepts, requirements and algorithms in order to develop a useful ASW threat suitability and likelihood evaluation tactical decision aid for the U.S. Navy.
