Abstract
A distributed Decision Support System (DSS) was implemented to assist the Air Operation Centre (AOC) staff in dealing with events of counter-drug operations; to intercept drug smugglers violating the Canadian airspace, in co-ordination with different services and parties. This DSS, called Commander’s Advisory System for Airspace Protection (CASAP), aims at helping the AOC team to describe and share information about such an incident, developing pertinent Courses of Action (COAs), evaluating these COAs and determining which one is most appropriate. An important element of this system is a semi-automated decision aid module for the selection of COAs. This module was developed to assist the Commander in prioritizing and analysing COAs. This document briefly presents CASAP and the decision aid module approach used (Multiple Criteria Decision Aid (MCDA)). Finally, the implemented sharing of responsibilities between the MCDA analyst, the decision-maker (the Commander) and the computer is discussed.
