Abstract:

Information processing and transformation in support of operations in combat environments have evolved well beyond the capabilities of classic deductive inductiveinformation systems. Unconventional warfare, and modern terrorism operate under conditions that do not lend themselves to pattern recognition techniques. The effort at Sandia National Laboratories is approaching the problem from an adaptive decision aid perspective in which new technologies are being hybridized to provide new and unique capabilities to deal with this new threat. These technologies are founded in Peircean reasoning and provide support for the various components needed to formulate a solution. The supporting technologies include formal concept analysis for knowledge representation, modal logic to provide guidelines for the movement and transformation of data and information, and a unique neural construct based on Hawkins concept of the neocortex. When integrated into a co-evolutionary game theoretic environment we believe we can provide capabilities of predicting the trends that will emerge in insurgency use of IEDs against combatants and non-combatants in theater.
