Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN AI-BASED METHODOLOGY FOR GENERATING TACTICAL AND OPERATIONAL-LEVEL SCENARIOS, STRATEGIES, PLANS, AND TACTICS. THE APPROACH INCORPORATES CONCEPTS FROM ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI), GAME THEORY, AND SIMULATION TECHNOLOGY. THE PURPOSE OF THE METHODOLOGY IS TO HAVE AN AUTOMATED PROCEDURE AVAILABLE FOR GENERATING SAMPLES OF SCENARIOS AND PLANS, WHICH MAY BE UTILIZED AS A BASIS FOR CONDUCTING PLANNING AND EVALUATION STUDIES.THERE ARE TWO PRINCIPAL BENEFITS THAT WOULD RESULT FROM AN AUTOMATIC SCENARIO-GENERATION CAPABILITY. FIRST, THE AVAILABILITY OF SAMPLES OF SCENARIOS ENABLES THE SCOPE OF INFERENCE OF AN ANALYSIS TO BE BROADER-BASED THAN IF THE ANALYSIS IS BASED ON A SINGLE SCENARIO, STRATEGY, PLAN, OR TACTIC. THE SECOND PRINCIPAL BENEFIT THAT WOULD RESULT FROM AN AUTOMATIC SCENARIO-GENERATION CAPABILITY IS THAT A POWERFUL METHODOLOGY WOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR EVALUATION OF COMMAND AND CONTROL, COMMUNICATIONS, ELECTRONIC WARFARE, AND INTELLIGENCE (CCCEWI) SYSTEMS.
