Abstract:

This paper summarizes a novel paradigm for expressing, enforcing, and formally reasoning about time-criticality of machine-to-machine resource management in battle management BM and C squared systems. Such systems are largely dynamic and asynchronous, and have time frames of O10exp-1 seconds and higher. Thus they fall into a neglected gap between traditional static periodic real-time systems, and traditional any time schedulingplanning systems e.g., for logistics. The paradigm uses application- level QoS metrics such as track quality, circular error probable, etc. to derive utility functions for completing tasks, and then uses those utility functions for resource management. This paradigm has been successfully employed in several experimental BMC squared demonstration systems, and is the topic of on-going research by industry and academia. Keywords
