Abstract:

This thesis examines the practicality of using an expert system approach in designing an intelligent air defense system to assist the Officer in Tactical Command OTC onboard a ship to make efficient and accurate decisions in critical situations in the battlefield. We analyzed modern anti-ship weapons and the counterattack measures. We also formalized some of the decision making processes and designed a computer simulation system. The system receives preprocessed sensor input, determines what contacts are present, performs target analysis and correlation based on current tactical situation, and suggests the best possible actions to take. The simulation results showed that the system can be used to speed decision making and response time in a time-critical combat environment. edc
