Abstract
A project has been initiated at DREV to design advanced automated resource management systems for naval warfare. Current efforts are focused on the design of a weapon engagement manager for the Agove-Water Warfare. The role of this manager is to assist a warfare officer in planning the allocation and engagement scheduling of weapon systems for a convoy for ships under attack by anti-ship missiles so as to maximize overall asset survival, while ensuring the conservation of non-renewable defence resources. The document situates the project, reviews our progress in the design and the manager, describes some of our sequential algorithms and multiple-instruction multiple-data parallel algorithms for the planning function in the manager, and gives a preliminary assessment of their computational performance.
