Abstract
EACH DATA SOURCE USED IN ANALYZING BATTLEFIELD INFORMATION PROVIDES A VIEW POINT THAT REQUIRES SPECIALIZED OPERATOR TRAINING TO UNDERSTAND. THE OPERATORS ARE CHARGED WITH COORDINATING LARGE VOLUMES OF INFORMATION FROM THESE MULTIPLE INFORMATION SOURCES AND INTEGRATING THEM INTO A SINGLE PROBLEM-SOLVING SYSTEM. A DATA SOURCE EXAMPLE IS MOVING TARGET INDICATOR (MTI) RADAR. THE TRACKING SYSTEMS THAT DETECT CHANGES IN IDENTIFIED OBJECTS CAN FAIL WHEN THE IMAGE IS COMPLICATED IN SOME MATTER. GOLD HILL PROPOSES TO RESEARCH THIS PROBLEM AREA AND TO DESIGN A SOLUTION ARCHITECTURE THAT CAN PERFORM SOME OF THE RECOGNITION ORIENTED TASKS NORMALLY REQUIRING THE ATTENTION OF OPERATORS. THIS SOLUTION WOULD BE BASED AROUND AN EXPERT SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT AND DELIVERY ENVIRONMENT RUNNING ON A SPECIAL PROCESSOR BOARD, PERMITTING THE SOLUTION TO BE DEPOLYED IN A POWERFUL, BUT YET, COMPACT COMPUTER.
