Abstract:

This paper highlights some major trends and developments in knowledge management with particular emphasis on knowledge capturing and authoring, and how this technology can be combined with intelligent agents to produce advanced capabilities for command and control systems. Past trends, present accomplishments and future work in knowledge management systems are covered. We also describe an in-house effort to accumulate, validate, and integrate the results of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA Rapid Knowledge Formation RKF program with a view toward the recommendation of specific technologies for transition to operational command centers. This technology will permit scientific, technical, and military experts, such as command-center and intelligence-center personnel to encode massive amounts of knowledge into reusable knowledge bases for application in many different tasks. This paper also presents current and future uses of adaptive and mobile intelligent agents to increase the dependability of FORCEnet by improving network-centric warfare in general, and the battlefield single integrated picture SIP in particular. Applications of mobile and adaptive intelligent agents are described. Further research is planned in the area of ontologies, expert systems, knowledge management, intelligent agents and user-interfaces for subject-matter experts under this program.
