Abstract:

The aim of this three year project under the contract number ARO DAAD19-02-1-0211 was to develop a mathematical modeling and metrics framework for supporting the threat evaluation stage of the Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield IPB process of asynchronous Low Intensity Conflict LIC threats FM34-7, Section 3-9. The first goal was to assess the extent to which emergent coordination happens among agents in so-called ping system simulations that model action taking place in a constrained resource environment. The second, related goal, was to assess whether the simulation systems possess near optimal fitness states. This report discusses how these assessments were made in the contexts of specific sets of agent decision and action protocols.
