Abstract : This paper describes a project whose objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of utilizing expert system technology to support the military intelligence processes on the modern battlefield. The project consists of a software system that fuses sensor and environment data with a priori knowledge of the enemy and applies expertise concerning critical indicators of enemy intentions to observed enemy behavior. The system is to produce transient situation displays and to satisfy the commander's battlefield information requirements. The work is relevant to the design of the second generation All Source Analysis System for the Army and the Air Force's Enemy Situation/Correlation Element. The project draws on Artificial Intelligence techniques that have been used to successfully model human expertise in a variety of areas. A rule-based architecture with highly structure knowledge and data representations is developed. It will automatically correlate and integrate reports from different kinds of intelligence sources, respond to intelligence requests such as the commander's Primary Information Requirements and other Information Requirements, keep requesting agencies appraised of changes in the perception of the battlefield, and justify its actions and answers.
