Abstract : This report describes the framework for, and a demonstration vehicle of, a knowledge-based testbed for integrating multiple artificial intelligence systems into a distributed processing network for purposes for evaluation and exploitation. TAC-1 is a version of the testbed applied to the domain of Air Force tactical battle management. The domain-independent framework includes a centralized control subnet, including a message router and a common protocol language for message passing among component systems. A Common Database and a Common Knowledge Base are essential components of the testbed. The Router directs data queries to the Common Database (one of the hosted systems) and, through the use of a Common Knowledge Base, directs service requests to the systems which can handle them. Keywords: Knowledge based systems, Distributed artificial intelligence, Cooperating knowledge based systems, Knowledge based tactical battle management. (sdw)
