Abstract
AUTOMATIC AIDS FOR SITUATION ASSESSMENT, GENERAL INFORMATION FUSION, DECISION MAKING AND PLANNING ARE VULNERABLE TO DECEPTION IN ADVERSARIAL SITUATIONS. COUNTER-DECEPTION CAPABILITIES TO DETECT POSSIBLE DECEPTIVE ACTIONS AND OBTAIN THE CORRECT ASSESSMENT ARE NEEDED TO PRESERVE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THESE AIDS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL CREATE TECHNOLOGICAL SUPPORT SO THAT THE EFFECTS OF DECEPTION ON PROBLEM-SOLVING SYSTEMS ARE RECOGNIZED AND MITIGATED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. THE SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES FOR PHASE I ARE TO ELUCIDATE THE PROBLEM OF PROVIDING AUTOMATED SUPPORT FOR COUNTERDECEPTION AND TO DESIGN A GENERAL PROBLEM-SOLVING SUPPORT SYSTEM THAT WILL PERFORM A PROBLEM-SOLVING TASK, AND ALSO ASSIST THE USER IN DEALING WITH DECEPTION RELATIVE TO THE PROBLEM-SOLVING TASK. THE FOUR CATEGORIES OF COUNTERDECEPTION SUPPORT ARE: EXPLICIT REPRESENTATION OF DECEPTION CONCEPT, MULTIPLE REASONING METHODS, SYSTEMWIDE REPRESENTATION, AND SYSTEM CONTROL. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL RESULT IN A DESIGN OF A DECEPTION-RESISTANT PROBLEM SOLVING SUPPORT SYSTEM FROM WHICH A PROTOTYPE WILL BE BUILT IN PHASE II.
