Abstract:

The responsibilities of the JFACC Joint Forces Air Component Commander are made challenging by a number of factors. JFACC are generally complex, open-ended, and broad in scope. Operating environments are dynamic, unpredictable, and typically hostile. Uncertainty is inherent, with the result that complete and accurate knowledge of the world can never be attained. For these reasons, successful operation requires a mix of long-range planning, responsiveness to unexpected events, and dynamic adaption of activity. Constructed plans must be living objects that evolve and grow over time in response to new tasks, updated information about the world, and result from partial execution through portions of the plan. SRIs project within the JFACC program sought to address these problems by developing a prototype Continuous Planning and Execution Framework CPEF that provides automated tools for the development, maintenance, and execution of living plans for highly dynamic environments such as JFACC, using a range of selected artificial intelligence AI technologies.
