Abstract : The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has a long history of supporting research in the area of Artificial Intelligence (AI). DARPA's Strategic Computing Program is developing an AI technology base upon which several applications programs are being built including the AirLand Battle Management Program (ALBM). The ALBM program office is cofunding the US Air Force's first major AI application: Rome Air Development Center's Tactical Expert Mission PLAnneR (TEMPLAR). TEMPLAR is an advanced development level effort that is building upon demonstrated systems at the exploratory development level as well as the Strategic Computing tech base. This paper describes the TEMPLAR program and its links to the AirLand Battle Management and Strategic Computing Programs. (Author)
