Abstract:

Effective self-synchronization in netted warfare requires the employment of intelligent agents. This statement is supposed by a review of what intelligent agents are, what they show promise of becoming and also what they are not A discussion follows in potential psychological and cultural challenges to implementing agent based computing in a networked military environment. The existence of such challenges has in fact been born out through recent Fleet Battle Experiments. By reviewing the employment of artificial intelligent agents in recent Fleet Battle Experiments, namely FBE INDIA and FBE JULIET, one can also begin to discern a pattern of experimental intelligent agent effectiveness in promoting self- synchronization of disparate, netted forces.
