Abstract : This report describes the development and demonstration of the Advanced Artificial Intelligence Technology Testbed (AAITT). The AAITT embodies a structured development paradigm and associated toolkit supporting the design, analysis, integration, evaluation, and execution of large-scale, complex, distributed systems, composed of knowledge-based and conventional components, in the context of various United States Air Force domains, particularly Tactical Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence. The AAITT's unified modeling, control, and monitoring facilities permit unrelated software components to be integrated without extensive re-engineering by allowing users to easily: (1) configure various application suites; (2) observe and measure the behavior of applications as well as the interactions between their constituent modules; (3) gather and analyze statistics about the occurrence of key events; and (4) flexibly and quickly alter the interaction of modules within the application for further study. Using the AAITT, capabilities neither designed nor originally intended to work together were transformed into integrated problem-solving suites. Four significant demonstrations were successfully conducted and showed that 10:1 integration improvements could be obtained by using the testbed. AAITT development and documentation followed a tailored DoD-STD-2167A process. User and programming manuals, as well as a week-long training course, were developed.
