This thesis extends the development of the Generalized Value System (GVS), used in the Airland Advanced Research Model (ALARM), as an on-going research effort at the Naval Postgraduate School. Specifically, the problem of determining the multidimensional mapping of the state variables that represent the condition of an entity into the power function is addressed. The methods described provide a means of acquiring this mapping function by the use of a Degraded Power Function (DPF). The DPF provides a basis for estimating the future state of an entity based on the state (condition) of the entity, virtually eliminating the exponential decay function presently in use. Keywords: Inherent power. (Theses)

Creation of a computer generated semi-autonomous entity able to function in an amphibious environment Sobey, Thomas Jay. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1995-09);The problem is that current programs used to generate Semi-Automated Forces (SAF) are unable to fully simulate amphibious military operations in littoral regions. SAF development has focused on three separate paradigms: ...

In order to properly manage the risks of a SoS development, a responsible agent is needed to coordinate and ...
