Abstract : The combination of increasing military system and task complexity, in the face of inherent human limitations has set the stage for development of innovative system integration approaches involving the use of knowledge based technology. The field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming solidified as a science and the technological aspects are developing rapidly. The implications for guidance and control are enormous. Practical applications of AI are critically dependent on advanced architectures, computer processing techniques and integration concepts. Recent advances in digital computation techniques including data base management, represent the core enabling technology necessary for the development of highly innovative design concepts, which will ultimately lead to major new military capabilities. Efficient tactical information management and effective pilot interaction are essential. Pilot decision aiding, combat automation, sensor fusion and on-board tactical battle management concepts offer the opportunity for substantial mission effectiveness improvements. Although real-time tactical military applications are relatively few in number, several exploratory and advanced development efforts are underway. Practical military applications of AI technology are of primary interest.
