Abstract
Military operations are typically conducted in demanding, dynamic, semi-structured and large-scale environments. The nature of these operating environments makes it difficult to detect, identify and track all the targets within the Volume Of Interest (VOI). To deal with this problem, sensing resources may have to be distributed across a large area, collecting a wealth of data. Yet, to effectively use that data, the sensing resources need to be properly managed. This report presents the design of holonic sensor management architecture. It follows two previous documents, which detailed the issues involved in military sensor management and the properties of holonic control, respectively. The holonic control proposed here is a novel approach to sensor management, in that its architecture supports dynamic linkages, thus allowing the achievement of changing objectives.
