Abstract : KRS is a knowledge-based system for planning offensive-counter-air missions. KRS aides human planners in preparing Air Tasking Orders. KRS can either be used interactively as a plan verifier or autonomously as a plan generator. KRS informs the user of any logical or doctrinal inconsistencies in a plan, and keeps track of resources and target status. Users can communicate with KRS via a natural language interface, pop-up menus, or a mouse pointing device. This paper presents an overview of KRS's capabilities, it knowledge representation schemes, how KRS verifies plans, and how plans are automatically generated. (Author)
