This paper describes a plan generation software for maritime interdiction tactical operation using conceptual blending theory (CBT) and software blending mechanism. CBT explains how human think using mental spaces and mental operators. This paper uses CBT to model Boyd's Observation-Orientation-Decision-Act Loop Theory, a mental process used by military commanders to make decision. Bio-inspired operators are used to monitor cues from the real world. Expert's experiences were captured using a similar strategy implemented in the threat assessment model created by Liebhaber and Feher. Probability Estimates of Events (PEoE) are used to represent the significance of each possible tactic used by potential threats. Several PEoE are used to represent the mental patterns used to recognize a threat situation. Finally, decision is derived using linear assignment, an optimality approach that considers threat attack probability, goals and interdiction resource effectiveness. Experienced naval warfare officers have given positive feedback on the results presented and commented that the model resembles the cognitive process of a decision maker in tactical plan generation. The model has also been tested in a Simkit-based simulator to coordinate patrol craft's maritime interdiction process.
