Abstract:

The ability to correctly identify entities encountered on the battlespace is a critical aspect of warfare. When Combat ID is of poor quality, the consequences of fratricide and missed opportunity can have a severe impact on mission effectiveness. Dstl have created the Integrative Combat Identification Entity Relationship INCIDER model which has captured the Human, Operational and Physical parameters and relationships that impact upon the decision making processes associated with Combat ID. A demonstration version of INCIDER, which undertakes stochastical parametric simulation of a single entity on entity encounter, has been developed and shown to successfully capture the required aspects of system and human behaviour within an operational context. This paper will discuss the historical problems with Combat ID, and describe typical identification processes. It will then describe the INCIDER parameters and relationships, and how the INCIDER demonstration model represents the Combat ID process. Finally the paper will discuss use and exploitation of INCIDER.
