Paper Abstract

To assist the battlefield commander, the U.S. Army Atmospheric Sciences Laboratory has developed a rule-based expert system that can advise weather forecasters on the possibility of thunderstorm activity and other severe weather phenomena. This expert system, the Thunderstorm Intelligence Prediction System (TIPS), provides expedient conclusions about the weather that are derived from a large sum of data. During the spring and summer thunderstorm season of 1990 TIPS was tested at 14 different sites across the United States
