Abstract
Some of the high-level issues in military sensor management (SM), and in Command and Control (C2) systems in general, are related to their organizational forms and distributed architectures. In order to meet safety and timeliness criteria of decision making, cooperation, coordination, and communication among multiple decision nodes are required. Moreover, an effective decomposition of the decision process is critical. The objective of this report is to present control architectures and control methods that are applicable to the management of sensors for tactical surveillance. It is explained that the hierarchical and recursive structure of holonic architecture provides the required flexibility and robustness without deviating significantly from the current military command structure. The application of the holonic control methodology to tactical SM is presented.
