Goal and plan, recognition and generation are fundamental to truly intelligent, adaptive aiding in software applications. The design and development of such capabilities is at the heart of an intelligence testbed being built for the Canadian, Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine (DCIEM). The purpose of the testbed is to examine and generalize principles of intelligent aiding incorporated into a now mature software tool for workspace layout design called, LOCATE. Generalization is being done with a view to applying those principles to other development efforts at DCIEM and beyond.
