Abstract
EXISTING MULTIPLE-AIRCRAFT AIR COMBAT SIMULATION MODELS GENERALLY RELY ON SIMPLIFIED TACTICS BASED ON RELATIVE POSITIONS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I STUDY IS TO DETERMINE THE POTENTIAL OF INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES FOR BUILDING A MORE REALISTIC TACTICS GENERATION MODULE ADAPTIVE TO EXISTING SIMULATION MODELS. THE APPROACH INVOLVES: (1) CLARIFICATION OF THE OVERALL AIR BATTLE MANAGEMENT STRUCTURE, WITHIN WHICH THE TACTICS DECISION PROBLEM IS IMBEDDED, THEREBY DETERMINING FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF A TACTICS GENERATOR; (2) SUITABILITY ASSESSMENT OF VARIOUS TECHNIQUES, E.G., EXPERT SYSTEMS, RULED-BASED SYSTEMS, LEARNING THEORY, AND DIFFERENTIAL GAMES, FROM WHICH A MOST PROMISING TECHNIQUE WILL BE IDENTIFIED; (3) DEVELOPMENT OF A PROTOTYPE TACTICS GENERATOR USING THAT TECHNIQUE; AND (4) TESTING IT ON A SELECTED MODEL TO DEMONSTRATE FEASIBILITY AND ACHIEVEMENT ON SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED SIMULATIONS.
