SC895: Introduction to Cognitive Situation Management for Tactical Operations
Modern wars are characterized by high mobility of troops and weapon systems, increasing operational tempo, and asymmetric and often unpredictable situations. Such new characteristics predicate the need for comprehensive and effective methods of battlespace situation management. Situation Management (SM) is as a synergistic goal-directed process of situation awareness, control, and prediction in dynamic operational spaces. The essential components of SM include sensing and intelligence gathering, information fusion and event correlation, modeling of the domain entities and their inter-relations, detecting and reasoning about the situations, threat situation prediction, and action planning affecting the situations. This course gives an overview of a new direction in situation management called cognitive (intelligent) situation management, i.e. on SM, which is associated with the meaning of situations and the logical methods of reasoning about the situations. In order to exhibit such intelligent capabilities, the systems should possess fairly elaborated conceptual knowledge about the domain (domain ontology). The first section of the course describes the domain of cognitive situation management, reviews the issues, and gives introductory notions of modeling complex dynamic systems and operational situation management. The second section introduces the basic elements of the formal framework of cognitive situation management. The third section gives examples of situation management. The fourth section describes the core technologies of building situation management systems. The fifth section presents a distributed architecture of a situation management system based on a multi-agent approach, describes the software system architecture based on component services, and refers to several tools of building the situation management applications. The last section will discuss some advanced topics of situation management and outline future research and development directions. Overall, the course concentrates on practical aspects, requirements, basic concepts, architecture, design and key enabling technologies of building cognitive situation management systems.
