Abstract
The capability to gather, analyze, and integrate vast amount of information from diverse data resources in various heterogeneous types and forms, and to distill from them the valuable intelligence leads or cohesions with respect to command and control decisions has become the top priority for U.S. military commanders. Correspondingly, inference mechanisms of automated systems must be empowered with hybrid ways of reasoning and integration. The team of 21st Century Systems Inc. and the University of Nebraska, Omaha propose a system concept entitled "HICIN," (Hybrid Intrinsic Cellular Inference Network) to address these issues. HICIN is an intelligent inference structure that accommodates multiple inference mechanisms for reasoning and integration of hybrid data sets in heterogeneous forms with quantitative and qualitative accounts of data certainties and source reliabilities. The technique will allow a more accurate and reliable account of complex intelligences from multiple sources of hidden and diversely dispersed information pieces. The highest priority of the application areas of the research will be Navy multi-source combat information integration and intelligence support within the Navy's FORCEnet capabilities. A prototype to demonstrate the feasibility of the structure and its application to battlespace data fusion and C2 decision support will be implemented.
