Abstract:

This report summarizes first year technical progress SFRC N00014-84-K-0734, Research in Distributed Tactical Decision Making Decentralized Resource Management in Tactical Computer Executives, for the period 1 August 1984 contract start date through 31 July 1985. This research reported herein in jointly funded by Office of Naval Research and Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command. The objective of this effort is to conduct research in the area of distributed tactical decision making Carnegie-Mellon University CMU proposed to conduct research on primarily two tasks in the first contract year. Task A considers best effort decision making for decentralized resource management. Task B focuses on the development of atomic transaction theories to support highly concurrent and reliable real-time computation. Innovative research under the guidance of the Principal Investigator was conducted on both of these tasks. Work will continue on both tasks in the second contract year. Keywords Best effort decision making, Dynamic reconfiguration, Decentralized scheduling, Non-serializable transactions.
