To reduce mission manning and increase adaptability and evolvability for managing current operations of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), Miniature Air-Launched Decoy (MALD) and future systems, an Autonomous Mission Planner and Supervisor (AMPS), based upon an Intelligent Information Agent (I2A) architecture for real-time, adaptive, decision making is proposed. AMPS will use a naturalistic decision-making approach to comparing sensor inputs to a priori situational “scripts” and previously collected data to improve determination/decision and execution time of appropriate actions thereby, enhancing quality and minimizing time to achieve each related mission goal….
