Abstract:

This thesis determined the applicability of various artificial intelligence techniques to the Battle managementCommand, control and communications BMC3 objective of the Strategic Defense Initiative. This analysis was accomplished by an extensive literature review followed by personal interviews with members of various organizations within the Department of Defense DOD. Interviews were limited to people in the DOD because of their anticipated willingness to provide information versus non-DOD people. The results obtained are an accumulation of opinions and perceptions and are not to be taken as concrete facts. Results indicated that the artificial intelligence techniques that would be most beneficial to the Battle ManagementCommand, control and communications issue are expert systems, knowledge-based systems, automatic programming and natural language processing. Areas of BMC3 where these techniques were considered to be of most benefit include event classification and discrimination, resource allocation, sensor allocation, real-time response capability, data processing, surveillance and intelligence, electronic equipment maintenance, software generation and increased testability of BMC3 systems. Keywords Man machine systems and Strategic analysis. Author
