Abstract:

This thesis discusses the design, implementation, and testing of the UNREP system, an Intelligent Computer-Assisted Instruction ICAI tutoring system to simulate Underway Replenishment operations by training two students simultaneously on separate computer workstations. Each student plays the role of the Officer of the Deck OOD aboard each of the ships involved. Emergency situations are included to add realism to the simulation. While several different ICAI systems have been developed in the past, few have focused on the coordination aspects of applications which involve cooperation in joint activities, such as military operations. Artificial Intelligence AI techniques and programming tools were employed to construct this system. Education and training in the military operations. Artificial Intelligence AI techniques and programming tools were employed to construct this system. Education and training in the military, ICAI systems for military applications, ICAI general characteristics, knowledge representation, and time and task coordination are some of the topics discussed in this thesis. Keywords Military applications, Combat readiness.
