Abstract:

Traditional military command & control (C2) usually evokes images of operators in command posts centers. But what about the mounted or dismounted soldier trying to get from A to B without getting blown up? It's C2 as well, just a different scale. The digital battlefield provides an explosion of information to gain a tactical advantage over the adversary but it's challenging. That challenge is to sift through this information and identify critical information to help plan or re-plan the mission. The team of 21st Century Systems, Inc. and University of Missouri - Rolla proposes to develop agent-based decision-aiding system and technologies to train and assist the soldier through that challenge. Research will examine interactive terrain analysis and planning incorporating spatial and temporal terrain details and dynamically changing intelligence information, via battlefield networks. When given mission intent, the system will be able to provide dynamic guidance for interactive terrain analysis and mission planning. Our system will be for the soldier of the future trained in virtual, scenario-based simulation environments. Rather than developing specialized training environments, the emphasis of our system is embedded training of the soldier so that the training interface is created around the soldier's actual combat vehicle and systems.
