Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL CONCERNS THE BASIC RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT REQUIRED TO DEFINE AN OPERATIONS MONITORING ASSISTANT (OMA) WHICH IS INTENDED AS A TOOL FOR ASSESSING THE IMPACT OF CURRENT EVENTS ON A CORPS, OR DIVISION LEVEL OPERATIONS PLAN. THE SYSTEM IS PRINCIPALLY CONCERNED WITH FULFILLING AN INDICATIONS AND WARNING FUNCTION, THAT IS, WITH PREDICTING THE CONSEQUENCES OF IMPORTANT BATTLEFIELD EVENTS IN TERMS OF THE FUTURE OPERATIONAL GOALS THAT MAY OR MAY NOT BE ACHIEVED. IN ADDITION TO PREDICTING PROBLEMS, THE OPERATIONS MONITORING SYSTEM SHOULD PROVIDE EARLY INDICATION OF OPPORTUNITIES WHICH IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO EXPLOIT. THE SYSTEM OPERATES BY PERFORMING INFERENCE ON TWO SOURCES OF DATA; A REPRESENTATION OF THE CURRENT SITUATION WHICH INCLUDES A TACTICAL ANALYSIS OF THE BATTLEFIELD, AND A REPRESENTATION FOR THE OPERATIONS PLAN WHICH CAPTURES THE GOALS BEHIND THE ACTION INVOLVED. THIS APPROACH RELIES ON THE USE OF ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNIQUES.
