Paper Abstract

We present current work on the Weather and Doctrinal Information Fusion (WADIF) system for Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield (IPB). The task of the WADIF system is to determine the performance of an Army operational asset, such as a tank, taking into account current and projected terrain and weather conditions. This is a task that is currently performed manually, requiring significant personal resources. The WADIF system automates much of the process, enabling the user to analyze the area of interest in greater detail. By giving the user this ability, the WADIF system will significantly improve the quality of the decisions made. We present a discussion of the task environment and the architecture of the WADIF system in detail, and conclude by discussing future directions.
