Abstract
We propose to research, design, and build an innovative Toolkit for INtelligent COmbat Planning and Simulation (TINCOPS). We propose a knowledge-based approach to manage knowledge collected from various sources including combat and geospatial experts anddeploy such knowledge for complex combat decision support applications.Key innovations include: (1) a rigorous and comprehensive knowledge management methodology to serve as the foundation of the TINCOPS approach to combat mission planning, (2) the dynamic representation of diverse combat mission planning knowledge inTINCOPS, an intelligent Decision Support System (DSS) for knowledge-based planning with simulation, and (3) the combination of such combat knowledge with the conventional GIS-based system to aid a user in formulating a mission plan in an intelligentmanner. The principal project benefits are: (1) a thorough understanding of the combat knowledge in the mind of a military expert, (2) significant improvement in future combat training and planning with the above knowledge elicited and formally represented forfuture reference, (3) significant intelligent support for combat mission planning to augment human cognition, and (4) strategically smarter combat decisions to be made with the aid of TINCOPS.
