Abstract:

This report reviews the major system components of the MSPES and discusses modifications made to the system under Phase II of this contract. Phase II development grew out of the prototype system developed under Phase I. A high-level description of the software architecture was presented in an earlier document Barth et al, 1987, with a more detailed description presented in the Phase I Final Report Dillencourt et al, 1988. The scope of Phase II was the development of a complete expert system for minefield site prediction. Phase II MSPES development continued on the Sun 3160 at the request of ETL. The transporting of the system to the target computer, a VAX Station II GPX, was scheduled for Phase III. Phase II effort was concentrated in two areas first, the implementation of the user interface using the X Window System graphics package, and secondly, in expanding the knowledge base of minefield doctrine. Keywords Expert system, Minefield site prediction, GIS Geographic Information System, Quadtree, Window system, Terrain analysis, Minefield doctrine.
