Abstract
The Anti-Submarine Warfare Commander (ASWC) has a crucial responsibility to protect against surface and subsurface threats, which requires keeping track of contacts and making safety-critical decisions. The Undersea Warfare Decision Support System (USW-DSS) supports the ASWC and his team by providing a"Common Tactical Picture"via the Master Tactical Plot (MTP). However, evolving sensor and data fusion capabilities have resulted in a cluttered MTP requiring more time for ASWC decision making. ABIDE, Agent Based Intelligent Decluttering Enhancements, offers an innovative solution that will dynamically adjust the MTP based on the needs of the ASWC. Two key elements form the basis of our approach. The first is an agent framework that allows for flexibility through the addition and augmentation of agents to meet current and future requirements. The is a scientifically grounded strategy for defining, measuring, and refining displays to reduce clutter . Our solution will be designed specifically for use with the USW-DSS Build 3 common architecture for all applications to ensure that our work is compatible with the larger program.
