Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL FIRST SPECIFY AND THEN IMPLEMENT AN EXPERT SYSTEM TO AID IN THE PLANNING OF OPTIMAL MESSAGE ROUTES IN A LARGE (400 NODE), DYNAMIC TACTICAL NETWORK. WHEREAS CONVENTIONAL NETWORK OPTIMAL ROUTES ARE BASED UPON DELAY MINIMIZATIONS, THE APPROACH HERE WILL BE TO MAXIMIZE THE PROBABILITY OFSUCCESSFUL DELIVERY. THIS OPTIMIZATION WILL REQUIRE ASSESSMENT OF THE RELIABILITY OF EACH LINK AND NODE IN ADDITION TO THEIR TRAFFIC HANDLING CAPABILITIES AND REQUIREMENTS. THE OPTIMIZATION ACTIVITY IS WELL SUITED FOR THE EXPERT SYSTEM APPROACH AND VICE-VERSA BECAUSE OF THE STRUCTURE OF THE PROBLEM AND THE RESULTING FLEXIBILITY. THE EXPERT SYSTEM WILL BE SPECIFIED IN PHASE I; IN PHASE II, AN ACTUAL EXPERT SYSTEM WILL BE IMPLEMENTED.
