Abstract
THE THREAT EXPERT SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY ADVISOR, (TESTA) DESIGN WHICH IS PROPOSED HERE, WILL ENCAPSULATE THE KNOWLEDGE TECHNIQUES AND REASONING PROCESSES OF PILOTS AND FLIGHT CREWWHEN ENCOUNTERING OBSTACLES AND THREATS DURING A NOE FLIGHT COMBAT MISSION. TESTA WILL BE USED TO PROVIDE AN AUTOMATED OBSTACLE AND THREAT AVOIDANCE CAPABILITY BASED ON SENSOR DATA FOR RANGE, AZIMUTH AND ELEVATION. A SELECTED NOE FLIGHT COMBAT MISSION WITH A SPECIFIC SET OF THREAT SEQUENCES WILL BE USED TO MODEL THIS PROTOTYPE SYSTEM. ADVANCED EXPERT SYSTEM TOOLS, EXPERIENCED REAL TIME SOFTWAREENGINEERS AND EXCELLENT COMPUTER HARDWARE FACILITIES WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE PROJECTS SUCCESS. THE MULTIPLICITY OF INCOMING THREAT AND SENSOR DATA, WHICH IS OFTEN IMPRECISE AND INCOMPLETE, WILL BE EFFECTIVELY UTILIZED BY THIS ADVANCED EXPERT SYSTEM CONCEPT. THE DESIGN OF THIS EXPERT SYSTEM WILL BE FLEXIBLE AND EXTENSIBLE AND WILL ALLOW THE EXPERTS AND USERS ALIKE, TO INTERACT WITH IT IN ORDER TO REDUCE THREAT REACTION AIDING CAPABILITIES IN A TIMELY MANNER UNDER GIVEN COMBAT SITUATIONS. THE MODEL AND PROTOTYPE DESIGN DEVELOPED IN PHASE I WILL BE THE BASIS FOR A FULL-SCALE DEVELOPMENT IN PHASE II. WE BELIEVE THAT DEVELOPING TESTA USING THE AUTOMATED REASONING TOOL (ART) WILL PROVIDE A UNIQUELY FLEXIBLE ENVIRONMENT FOR TEST AND EXPERIMENTATION WITH THE LOGIC, KNOWLEDGE, AND THREAT INFORMATION.
