Abstract
A knowledge-based adaptive resource management agent (KARMA) to support dynamic planning and execution monitoring in a time-constrained uncertain military environment is presented. Based upon a parallel blackboard architecture, KARMA relies on the concept of adaptive planning which interleaves plan construction and plan execution allowing accurate planning when time is available and coarse fast planning under time pressure, trading-off solution quality and run-time computation. The adaptive planning concept shown by the KARMA prototype has been applied to an Army Aviation Fleet context, namely to a tactical squadron domain level to support mission planning (air vehicle routing and crew scheduling), and clearly shows applicability to alternate military domains and components as well.
