Abstract : A knowledge-based computer system, with its foundation in Artificial Intelligence, would be a valuable asset to the military tactical commander. Current systems are slow, large, expensive, inflexible and therefore, impractical for use in the tactical environment. A detailed design of a prototype small-computer-based system is presented which processes and interprets intelligence and tactical information to assist tactical commanders in making decisions. The system, TAC, for 'Tactical Adaptable Consultant', incorporates a database, and a distributed interface. Emphasis is placed on the representation and processing of two types of information: data about the real world; and knowledge about what that data means. (Author)
