Pagination or Media Count:
This report details the investigation, development, and prototype demonstration of evolving C4ISR capabilities of aircraft in an arbitrary environment. Natural Selection, Inc. NSI was tasked to show how the application of the Valuated State Space Approach and evolutionary programming EP could be used to produce optimal behavioral plans, and develop a set of requirements for implementing this capability within an existing or near-future simulation engine. As a step toward the creation of an actual prototype system, a small prototype optimal planning mechanism was created using computationally intelligent techniques. A long-term goal is to develop a generalized, extensible evolutionary software system which can efficiently and effectively encompass all desired hierarchical levels of planning for air combat entities, and can be used as a tactical decision aid or training mechanism.
