Abstract
"21st Century Systems, Inc. proposes to research and realize an agent-based decision support system for logistics and maintenance operations. We will use a highly innovative hybrid Bayesian/differential game modeling approach to tackle this problem. Theresulting theory and technology will facilitate logistics and maintenance operations by addressing such practical problems as tradeoff evaluation for onboard sparing and prepostioned replenishments, predictive failure analysis for corrective maintenanceactions, and real-time reevaluation and adjustment of logistics planning packages. 21st Century Systems, Inc. fully expects this effort to culminate in both substantial new applied theory and in a revolutionary advancement in the way computers are used tosolve shipboard logistic support planning.We plan to transition this work through incorporating the resulting decision support under uncertainty into our Advanced Battlestation/Decision Support System (ABS/DSS) work under PEO Carriers and ONR funding in collaboration with NSWCPHDDN andNUSC-Keyport, and transitioning aboard the USS LINCOLN (CVN-72). Decision support under uncertainty will also be of significant utility in our work for the USAF Space Missile Center (decision support for SBIRS-LOW surveillance satellite operators) andother USN, USAF and DOD projects. Many commercial applications would benefit strongly from the use of agent-based decisions support under uncertainty and the
