TacAir-Soar is an intelligent, rule-based system that generates believable " human-like " behavior for large scale, distributed military simulations. The innovation of the application is primarily a matter of scale and integration. The system is capable of executing most of the airborne missions that the United States military flies in fixed-wing aircraft.(More)
This paper is based on our experiences in integrating a real-time high-fidelity model of human behavior in advanced distributed battlefield simulations. Our experiences are drawn from our participation in the Synthetic Theater of War-1997 (STOW-97) in which we developed behaviors for all U.S. Navy, Air Force, and Marine fixed wing aircraft missions. We(More)
The variety of communications employed by CGFs requires a flexible communications infrastructure that can be readily modified for new applications, new communication devices, and even user preferences. Understanding the variety of CGF communications has led us to redesign the communications infrastructure of TacAir-Soar, a real-time aircraft CGF. The design(More)
Producing realistic computer generated forces in a distributed integrated simulation requires flexible mission execution and behavior coordination within the agent itself as well as in its interactions with other agents. This paper focuses on the types of behavior required to produce a realistic airborne forward air controller in closely coordinated attack(More)
The goal of our research is to understand the cog-nitive capabilities required in fully autonomous intelligent systems. The specific application we are studying is real-time distributed battlefield simulations that include humans (in shnul~ors and specially instru-mented vehicles) and computer generated forces, interacting in real-time, tmscripted,(More)
Background. Congenital chloride diarrhea (CCD) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the genes encoding the intestinal Cl(-)/HCO3 (-) exchanger and is clinically characterized by watery, profound diarrhea, electrolyte disturbances, and metabolic alkalosis. The CCD diagnosis is based on the clinical symptoms and measurement of high(More)
