Abstract
Decision aids, in the perspective of the soldier, exist to assist him in seven distinct operational areas - Plan, Deploy, Detect, Evaluate, Decide, Deliver, and Sustain. These represent "stages" of military operations - and at any stage the soldier may be required to fall back to planning, and a repeat of the process. Decision aids must be accessible to the soldier in such a way as to easily, and intuitively, allow for the soldier to request and obtain assistance. The objective of this effort is the continuing development of a JTA-A compliant "tool-kit" for Intelligent Decision Aiding of Remotely Deployed Unmanned Systems, both Ground (UGS) and Air (UAVs) supporting Munitions and Sensor operations. Intelligent aiding of planning, control and effective employment of missing payloads includes target area coverage, enemy movement, placement/engagement area selection as well as generation of tactical messages for fire support and control of fires. The resulting decision aiding "toolkit" for UGS and UAV will be created by using a combination of analytical and cognitive decision processes implemented in reusable software components conforming to The Weapons System Technical Architecture Working Group (WSTAWG) framework and Appendix F of the JTA-A.
