Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to present a multi-level operational C2 holonic reference architecture that is applicable to Navy maritime headquarters MHQ with maritime operations center MOC for assessing, planning and executing multiple missions and tasks across a range of military operations. The control architecture consists of three levels strategic level control SLC, operational level control OLC and tactical level control TLC. In addition to coordination within each level, two specific coordination layers are identified at the SLC-OLC and the OLC-TLC interfaces. The SLC-OLC interface layer resolves evaluation issues associate with selecting DIME diplomatic, information, military and economic actions based on national priorities, while the OLCTLC interface layer is used to resolve mission monitoringplanning issues associated with deciding on the courses of action based on outcomes of asset-task allocation at the tactical level. We employ semi-Markov decision process SMDP approach to decide on missions to be executed and their time sequence at the SLC-OLC layer coordination of future plans, while a distributed SMDP approach to an action-goal attainment AGA graph for addressing the mission monitoring planning issues related to task sequencing and asset allocation at the OLC-TLC layer coordination of future operations and current operations.
