Research Institution
The proposed innovation is a Situational Assessment and Warfighter Analysis Framework (SAWAF) to support analysis and assessment of network centric fire support and probable courses of action. The core of this architecture is the ability to host a variety of intelligent agent based algorithms/solvers through a shared tuple space. A tuple space is a highly structured, distributable approach to complex blackboard problems. Nominally, each tuple consists of an Object/Value or an Object/Attribute/Value pairing. For this project, a tuple has an extended, precise nomenclature to allow for consistent integration between the many tools that are able to plug into this architecture. The tuple for this project consists of two parts - the preamble and the factoid. The preamble consists of the creator of the factoid, an associated priority, a confidence placed on the factoid, and the spatio-temporal constraints. The factoid itself is comprised of an Object/Attribute/Value pairing based on the specific domain of situation awareness/netted fires.
