Abstract

Effective deployment and utilisation of limited and constrained intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) resources is seen as a key issue in modern network-centric joint-forces operations. In this chapter, we examine the application of semantic matchmaking and argumentation technologies to the management of ISR resources in the context of coalition operations.We show how ontologies and reasoning can be used to assign sensors and sources to meet the needs of missions, and we show how argumentation can support the process of gathering and reasoning about uncertain evidence obtained from various sources.
