Abstract
Accurate Automation Corporation (AAC) proposes to develop a new method for ensuring that workflow processes are opaque to the enemy. That is, the enemy cannot produce effective counter operations by leveraging knowledge of how U.S. Army institutions work. Simultaneously, the U.S. Army’s internal processes will remain transparent and understandable to coordinating units with appropriate access. Any workflow, algorithm, or controller can be augmented so long as the stakeholders can agree to allowable variations in their processes, enabling flexibility of choice. This issue is particularly important with regards to workflows that involve information fusion and reduction. This is because such workflows provide the enemy with an opportunity to exploit artificial limitations on the knowledge of battlefield commanders and their support organizations. AAC will also apply a unique sensor fusion method to the task of fusing what would otherwise be an overwhelming stream of information into usable inputs to a planning system.
