As General John P. Jumper, Air Force Chief of Staff, noted the bulk of an Air Operations Center Air Tasking Order cycle is spent gathering information from different stovepipe intelligence assets, then manually evaluating the results and planning implications. This time consuming process is an obstacle that inhibits the real-time battlespace awareness needed by commanders to dynamically task assets to address time critical targets and help the Air Force meet its goal of “striking mobile and emerging targets in single digit minutes”. This paper describes how research performed for the Dynamic Intelligence Anticipation, Prioritization, and Exploitation System (DIAPES) supports this goal by leveraging advances in ontological modeling, intelligence data integration; artificial intelligence; and visualization. DIAPES applies automated analysis and visualization to an integrated ontology that specifies the relationships among intelligence and planning products and battlespace execution assets. This research seeks to enable commanders and analysts to perform 'what-if' scenarios to judge tradeoffs and determine the potential propagation effects that retasking assets to address time critical targets have throughout battlespace plans and participants.
