||Developing representations and algorithms to provide automated planning advice for complex military operations.
||Stottler Henke has developed BEACON, a system to provide an ontology of concepts suitable for representing key aspects of military plans and the narrative structure of historical cases that shed light on plan execution and outcomes.
||BEACON explored the representational requirements for capturing the content of lessons learned in such a way as to support retrieval and presentation when relevant to planning while avoiding the ambiguities of text-based search. It demonstrates the utility of integrating lesson retrieval with tools for task work like mission planning.
