The author and her team have developed a demonstration ocean surveillance information fusion expert system under an Internal Research and Development (IR&D) program at Science Applications, Inc. (SAI). Specifically, the expert system models the thought processes of an ocean surveillance watch analyst attempting to assess vessels' missions and destinations given their correlated tracks, history, and location/status of other vessels in the domain of interest. For the demonstration, rules were developed for determining the mission and destination of selected survey ships. The expert system was developed using the OPS5 production system and the Franz Lisp programming language on a VAX/VMS computer system. By the end of 1983, a simple demonstration was running. The development plans for 1984 include expanding the scope of the system to handle multiple vessel tracks and more mission types and enhancing the user interface of the system. The architecture and design of the expert system will be presented in this paper, implementation issues will be discussed, and progress and future plans will be overviewed.
