Abstract:

Standardization and the ability to integrate similar agent-based systems will be a key factor in the deployment of future military agent-based systems multiple developers can coordinate in the development phase, integration with existing components will be streamlined in the deployment phase, and collaboration with similar systems such as coalition forces will be trivial. Unfortunately, there exists no taxonomy of terms that can describe concepts, definitions, and functional elements within agent-based systems. This makes accomplishing the above difficult if not impossible. In this paper, we describe a reference model for agent-based systems and show the methodology behind its development. Such a comprehensive reference model will facilitate adoption, adaptation, and integration of agent technologies into systems for use by government and private industry, with a particular focus on applications in military command and control.
