Abstract
INNOVATIVE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNIQUES HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO SOLVE MANY COMPLEX AIR FORCE PROBLEMS. ADVANCES IN COMPUTING SPEED AND EXISTING SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY ALONE ARE UNLIKELY TO RESULT IN REAL-TIME AERONAUTICAL SYSTEMS CAPABLE OF MEETING THE COMPLEX REQUIREMENTS OF THE AIR FORCE MISSION. RATHER, AN ALTERNATIVE METHODOLOGY SUCH AS ABDUCTIVE TECHNOLOGY, A NEW TECHNOLOGY PRESENTED IN THIS PROPOSAL, IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. ABEDUCTIVE TECHNOLOGY IS AN INNOVATIVE POTENTIAL SOLUTION TO MANY CHALLENGES PRESENTED BY THE AIR FORCE MISSION BECAUSE IT ALLOWS COMPUTER SOFTWARE TO REASON EFFECTIVELY UNDER UNCERTAINTY, LEARN, AND RESOLVE COMBINATIONAL EXPLOSIONS OF POSSIBLE SITUATIONS IN A COMPACT AND RAPIDLY EXECUTABLE FORM. THESE CAPABILITIES WILL INCREASE THE PROBABILITY OF SUCCESSFULLY DEVELOPING PRACTICAL AND DEPENDABLE AIR FORCE SYSTEMS, REDUCE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT COSTS SUBSTANTIALLY, AND ENHANCE SYSTEM CAPABILITIES.
