Abstract:

This paper discusses recent results and proposed work in the application of emerging artificial intelligence technologies for flexible mission management, especially for unmanned combat airborne vehicles. Military user needs are discussed for planning, monitoring and control tasks, along with relevant emerging technologies. A story board is described that depicts these military needs in the context of a scenario for countering mobile target threats. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of technical and non-technical barriers to integrating these emerging technologies within fielded systems, and an outline for the next steps.
