Over the past few years, swarm based systems have emerged as an attractive paradigm for building large scale distributed systems composed of numerous independent but coordinating units. In our previous work, we have developed a protoype system called COMSTAR (Cooperative Multi-agent Systems for automatic TArget Recognition) using a swarm of unmanned aerial(More)
This research addresses a problem of how to make effective use of real-time information acquired from multiple sensor and heterogeneous data resources, and reasoning on the gathered information for situation assessment and impact assessment (SA/IA), thus to provide reliable decision support for time-critical operations. A hierarchical collective agents(More)
The battlefield is a place of violence ruled by uncertainty. Timely knowledge of what's happening around a soldier can mean the difference between life and death. The goals of an enhanced mobile infantry are becoming a reality due, in part, to the U.S. Army's 21st Century Land Warrior (LW) program. However, the current system does not provide a " head up "(More)
Engineering of complex distributed r eal-time applications is one of the hardest tasks faced by the software p r ofession today. All aspects of the process, from design to implementation, are made more dii-cult by the interaction of behavioral and platform constraints. Providing tools for this task is likewise not without major challenges. In this paper, we(More)
In this work we approach the problem of monitoring and debugging real-time distributed systems by performing static analysis and transformations to eliminate obtrusion to the monitored system. Our work extends the CRL testbed compiler and run-time environment to support monitoring and logging for the purpose of post-mortem debugging. The main contribution(More)
