Abstract:

This report addresses the functional performance task of classifying terrain according to its degree of unsuitability for the performance of a given activity e.g.,locomoting, shooting by a given military unitvehicle, under given tactical conditions e.g., proximitylocationtype of enemy forces, susceptibility to enemy intelligence collection assets, weather. Such a terrain modelingreasoning capability serves as foundational infrastructure for battlespace reasoning applications including information fusion, planning, and simulation applications. The goal of this work was to exploit the Knowledge Representation and Reasoning KRR tools in a synergistic architecture with logical reasoning capabilities, and develop a proof of concept prototype terrain suitability knowledge base.
