Abstract : Martin Marietta Denver Aerospace is involved in applications oriented research and development in artificial intelligence. The charter of the group is to augment Martin Marietta's existing technology based with artificial intelligence (AI). Our research and applications work is integrated in the sense that they drive each other in an iterative fashion. That is, DOD and NASA applications have led us to pursue researh into our AI software tool set. This enhanced tool set has, in turn, made new applications of AI possible. Three areas of AI form our main research and development thrusts: expert systems, natural language understanding, and planning. Our experience has shown that applications require a mixture of techniques from these different areas. For example, it is often appropriate to utilize a natural language front end in expert systems applications. Also, for some planning problems, we are employing an expert system approach.
