My Summer 2014 internship consisted of contributing to the Autonomy for Air Combat Missions ATACM project at the Knexus Research Corporation, a largely collaborative effort involving the Naval Research Lab NRL, the Naval Air Systems Command NAVAIR and the Air Force Research Lab AFRL. The ATACM projects main purpose is to create an autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicle UAV capable of flying alongside a human pilot in BVR Beyond Visual Range air combat missions. My job as part of Knexus, subcontracted under NRL, consisted of working on the reasoning systems for the UAV, with the label the Tactical Battle Manager TBM. NAVAIR and AFRL were responsible for interfacing the TBM with their respective simulators and providing domain specific knowledge in the realm of air combat. My contribution to the ATACM project took the form of a predictor, under the name PEPR the Planned Expected State Predictor, for use in the goal reasoning components of the TBM.
