Abstract : The Evolutionary electronic Combat Concepts (E2C2) Program was an advanced research and development effort with objectives to design, develop, and demonstrate new and innovative techniques and concepts to aid the survivability of Air Force combat and combat support aircraft. The overall thrust of the effort was to demonstrate the importance of an integrated approach to offensive and defensive system management with the emphasis on electronic combat (EC) systems. The techniques and concepts developed were used to provide the basis for an expert system offensive/defensive systems mediator capability for improved survivability, reduced threat exposure, elimination of conflicting EC actions, and reductions of aircraft systems energy emissions. This capability included the implementation of situation assessment algorithms and expert system decision strategies in a prototype Covert Integrated. Combat Controller (CINTEC2). CINTEC2 contains algorithms for managing offensive and defensive systems based upon threat and environmental situation assessment, mission parameters and status, and sensor/system conflict and data relationships. Included in CINTEC2 are algorithms which perform search, track and identification of targets, fusion of sensor information, and expert system rules for decision making.
