Current tactical mission planning systems in a highly dynamic and uncertain environment can work in real-time but cannot guarantee efficient solutions. Potential constraints and conditions associated with mission critically impose the development of adaptive reasoning capabilities to support resource planning, monitoring and control. A blackboard-based approach for an adaptive intelligent system targeted to air vehicle tactical mission planning is presented. The proposed approach consists in evolving the opportunistic nature of the basic blackboard paradigm to support real-time dynamic planning and execution control in a time-varying and uncertain environment. The parallel blackboard architecture allows for the concurrent execution of multiple knowledge sources and provides explicit mechanisms to support event-driven and goal-directed problem-solving. It also includes resource-bounded reasoning capabilities represented through a meta-level control of computation responsible for deliberation scheduling and run-time monitoring of anytime knowledge sources. Based upon an object-oriented approach, a prototype of the baseline architecture has been partly implemented. This initiative is a significant contribution toward the development of an automated real-time advisory decision support system for resource management.
