WASHINGTON UNIV SEATTLE DEPT OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
Pagination or Media Count:
This paper presents an expert system capable of providing a divisional communications controller a troubleshooting aid to assist in locating and solving military communications problems. Often an inexperienced controller will be faced with an unfamiliar situation and could use the help provided by this artificial intelligence system. The software was developed using Turbo PROLOG as a rule based system with an extensive set of production rules emulating the way an experienced military controller would think through a problem. A user is asked a series of questions and based on the responses provided a probable problem is identified along with a solution to that problem. The program is an off line aid titled Military Communications Troubleshooting Aid MCTA. The use of this program in the System Control Element of a Division Signal Battalion would be very beneficial.
