Abstract
Many technical challenges will need to be surmounted to create practical cybercraft: assurance, control, rules of engagement, representation and discovery of the target environment, among others. However a serious challenge lurks behind all of these: scaling solutions to fleets of up to a million craft. New approaches are needed to deploy and control the craft at this scale. Failure to come to grips with this will risk mishaps such as fatal host resource exhaustion, accidental overrun of a node by thousands of cybercraft, and communications gridlock. This project will develop techniques to analyze very large fleets of cyber craft, associated operational constraints, and changing situation to enable deployment, command and control, and situation assessment. Adventium will evaluate and employ the latest research in large scale collaboration systems to craft an architectural solution tailored for the special needs of DoD cybercraft. We believe it is important to address these issues early in the cybercraft development and in parallel with other research efforts to ensure scalability solutions are part of cybercraft design.
