To support its research activities in the intelligence domain, the Intelligence and Information (I&I) Section at DRDC Valcartier is developing the Intelligence Science & Technology Platform (ISTIP) as a major component of its R&D infrastructures. To improve the reasoning capabilities of the platform, the mandate of this contract is to produce a Multi-Reasoner Inference (MRI) capability based on the Multi-Intelligence Tool Suite (MITS) and the ISTIP software components previously developed by the I&I Section. Five main different services have been developed containing four individual reasoners and one multi-reasoner orchestrator. The reasoners that have been created are a Case-Based Reasoner (CBR), a Rule-Based Reasoner (RBR), a Descriptive- Logic Reasoner (DLR) and a KInematics and Geospatial Analysis Reasoner (KIGAR) which is based on the KIGAM module of the Inference of Situational Facts through Automated Reasoning (ISFAR) tool. Through the use of a common reasoning framework, these reasonners can now leverage their reasoning capabilities by sharing their strength to other reasonners and achieve an amazing synergy. This document is the final report of the MRI.
