Abstract : The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) such as expert systems and neural networks could be instrumental in providing multi-level, real-time decision support assistance to the Tactical Action Officer (TAO). This paper examines the TAO concept and discusses some of its problems. Expert systems and neural networks are addressed concerning what they are along with an elementary explanation of how they work. Synopses of their capabilities and limitations are discussed in relation to specific elements of the TAO milieu. The final portion of the paper proposes a logical structure for a Comprehensive TAO Assistance System which would employ the AI technologies discussed.
