Abstract

Abstract—We consider the problem of sensor-mission assignment as that of allocating a collection of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaisance (ISR) assets (including sensors and sensor platforms) to a set of mission tasks in an attempt to satisfy the ISR requirements of those tasks. This problem is exacerbated in a coalition context because the full range of possible ISR solutions is not easy to obtain at-a-glance. Moreover, the operational environment is highly dynamic, with frequent changes in ISR requirements and availability of assets. In this paper we describe a solution for the sensor-mission assignment problem that aims to maximize agility in sensor-mission assignment, while preserving robustness. The search space of potential solutions is reduced by employing a semantic reasoner to work out the types of sensor and platform bundles suitable for a given set of ISR tasks. Then, an efficient resource allocation algorithm is used
