Abstract:

The expertise required by Tactical Action Officers in a modern Anti-Submarine warfare environment of complex weaponry, minimal reaction time and ardous conditions at sea necessitate training and experience that is both exhaustive and progressive. For these officers to be effective in making accurate and timely decisions so as to effect the most appropriate responses, they must have ready access to current tactical doctrine and system performance statistics. In time of war there is no time to allow a junior Tactical Action Officer to progress to a level of competency he must be a reliable, capable, fully functional warfare team member at the outset of his tour. This thesis presents a prototype Artificial Intelligence model of the TAO ASW decision making process using an expert system development tool run on a microcomputer, to train fledgling TAOs with an outlook to the potential development and capability of an operational expert system.
