Publication Date Jul 2011
Media Count 28p
Personal Author K. Devlin
Abstract The paper presents a preliminary report of a feasibility study of a project to develop a uniform descriptive framework that: (1) captures all of the complexity of the modern battlefield; (2) is capable of sufficient precision to allow for cross-domain communication that meets the needs of all parties; (3) allows for clarification and disambiguation; (4) is sufficiently natural and intuitive for rapid mastery by all parties. The framework is based on the adoption of an information-flow view of the battlefield, using situation theory.
