Knowledge Management for Distributed Tracking and the Next-Generation Command and Control [open pdf - 976KB]
"Knowledge Management for Distributed-Tracking (KMDT) is an ongoing research and development project to improve military-information functions in the battle space, such as command, control, and decision support. It features a scenario that shows how knowledge-management technologies, such as ontologies and intelligent agents can improve battlespace awareness and the decision-making process in command centers with respect to distributed tracking and threat identification of platforms. Cross lines of bearings using heterogeneous sensor data and other information from multiple platforms in the battle space can reduce the uncertainty in platform detection, localization, classification and identification. The paper describes metrics for ontology development and agent performance."
