Abstract
Current technologies do not provide optimal solutions for real time weapon and sensor resource management due to the inability to get optimized solutions in time to support weapon assignment. An air & missile defense system consisting of geographically distributed sensors and weapons and C2 nodes is often physically dispersed with limited communications bandwidth such that centralized processing and control becomes infeasible and imposes unnecessary fragility. In this proposal, Intelligent Systems Research intends to create a distributed resource management technology that enables elements to develop resource assignments & schedules that provide the best solutions in the time available and enable the distributed resources to coordinate to steadily improve the network mission objectives while providing improved defense results with minimal shots and resource allocation. This approach has been used in studies by our team of information fusion and probabilistic battlespace. We propose to further develop our proven approach using distributed intelligent agents We anticipate that our approach will result in a flexible resource management software technology and greater overall weapon system effectiveness with minimized resource use for a AMD net-centric architecture.
