Abstract
This project develops an innovative navigation agent software tool, integrated with standards based information management platform, that would simplify the task of NavInfo integration with shipboard navigation and weapons systems networks and that wouldsignificant reduce the cost of managing these systems. The tool would allow the definition of Navigation Agents (NavAgents) that would adapt the information needs of a new system into an existing infrastructure. The NavAgents could be defined either by asystem itself or by an administrator through a network management console. This allows maximum flexibility while not necessarily requiring that the new system support NavAgents directly. Each NavAgent could be defined for selective processing and mixing ofthe any NavInfo being integrated. The NavAgent on the network management console would serve as a very powerful tool for solving interfacing problems during installation and integration as well for normal ship's maintenance. The activities of NavAgentscould be trapped to a file for later analysis or playback. This allows the interfacing problems to be easily isolated, diagnosed, and resolved.The proposed navigation agent software tool has great potential applications for military and commercialaircraft, space vehicles and ships. It provides reliable, robust, and convenient navigation integration tool.
