An Architecture for Real-Time Mixed Initiative Collaborative Planning

Steven W. Mitchell

This paper describes an architecture for real time tactical planning in a naval combat system. Based around multiple users sharing a real time mixed initiative planning server, this system allows several specialists to collaboratively interact with the computer under the supervision of a task leader. Since the tactical domain requires real time response to high priority events, planning control passes between the specialists, the supervisor, and the automated planner as a function of changes in the environment. This architecture has been implemented in the DARPA Ship Systems Automation (SSA) Tactical Planner.
