Abstract
The objective of the Ground Guidance ISK Integration (G2I2) project is to create a military route planning tool with revolutionary new capabilities. Integrating previous, DARPA-funded research on Implicit Semantic Knowledge (ISK) with an advanced, knowledge-based route planner called Ground Guidance, G2I2 will be tolerant of errors in the terrain model being used for planning and will be capable of learning to generate better plans over time through interaction with a human planner. Phase I resulted in a proof-of-concept prototype that shows that ISK and Ground Guidance can be successfully integrated, that the necessary route information can be obtained and utilized, and that the resulting G2I2 system can provide significantly improved support for military route planning, according to criteria and requirements provided by military domain experts. Phase II will accomplish two goals: 1) research advanced features of the G2I2 system to provide powerful new capabilities and 2) develop a product suitable for transfer to military users. The integration target is a best-in-class route planning system for military applications, currently being integrated into numerous military command and control systems.
