1. -7122-1968. Evolving scout agents for military simulations.

Degree: MSin Computer Sciences, Computer Sciences, 2015, University of Texas – Austin

Simulations play an increasingly significant role in training and preparing the military, particularly in environments with constrained budgets. Unfortunately, in most cases a small number of people must control a large number of simulated vehicles and soldiers. This often leads to micromanagement of computer-controlled forces in order to get them to exhibit the human-like characteristics of an enemy force. This thesis uses Neuroevolution of Augmenting Topologies (NEAT) to train neural networks to perform the role of scouts which analyze the terrain and decide where to place themselves to best observe the enemy forces. The main attribute that the scout agents consider is a vapor flow rate from the enemy starting location to their intended objective, which according to previous studies indicates likely chokepoints along the enemy route. This thesis experiments with different configurations of sensors and fitness functions in order to maximize how much of the enemy team is spotted over the course of the scenario. The results show that these agents perform better than randomly placed scouts and better than scouts deployed using heuristics in many situations, although not consistently so. Evolutionary optimization of scout agents using vapor flow is thus a promising approach for developing autonomous scout agents in military simulations.

2. Ivan Carlos Soares de Oliveira. O uso da análise espacial no processo de integração terreno, condições meteorológicas e inimigo (PITCI) do exército brasileiro.

Degree: 2006, Universidade de Brasília

A busca por informações, incluindo a espacial, é essencial para o planejamento e para a execução das operações militares. A amplitude da operação a ser executada baseia-se no conhecimento sobre as forças oponentes, ou beligerantes, sobre o terreno e sobre as condições meteorológicas. A execução da atividade de Inteligência nas operações militares visa à produção de conhecimentos essenciais à condução de missões operacionais. Em tempo de paz busca-se a formação de um considerável banco de dados para cada área de possível emprego da Força Terrestre (FT), conforme as hipóteses de conflito levantadas. A análise da área de operações é dividida em três fases distintas: o estudo das caracte- rísticas do terreno, do clima (meteorológicas) e do inimigo. Neste trabalho são abordadas a duas primeiras: terreno e clima, tendo como área de estudo o Campo de Instrução de Formosa (CIF) do Exército Brasileiro, situado no Estado de Goiás, a leste do Distrito Federal. Foi construído um Sistema de Informações Geográficas (SIG), com o objetivo de rea- lizar a modelagem espacial do ambiente onde uma tropa pode ser empregada, por meio de diversos dados geográficos e temáticos como dados de solo, cobertura vegetal e drenagem, dentre outros, com a finalidade de prover o necessário apoio à decisão, realizando o Processo de Integração Terreno, Condições Meteorológicas e Inimigo (PITCI), dentro de um Estudo de Situação hipotético. A metodologia adotada foi desenvolvida em três etapas fundamentais: estruturação da base geográfica de dados vetoriais, processamento digital de imagens de satélites de sensori- amento remoto e análise espacial. Como principais resultados obtidos têm-se a organização da base de dados existente da área de estudo e a confecção do mapa de Restrições ao Movimen- to.

The search for information, including the spatial information, is essential for th planning and execution of the military operations. The extent of the military operation to b executed is supported by the knowledge about the opponent forces, about the terrain an about the meteorological conditions. The execution of the Intelligence activity in the military operations aims th production of essential knowledge to the conduction of operational missions. In a peace tim it is necessary to form an important data base for each possible use of the Army, according t the existing conflict hypothesis. The operation area analysis is divided into three distinct phases: the study of th characteristics of terrain, weather and enemy. This work covers the first two: terrain an weather, being the area of study the Instruction Field of Formosa (CIF), of the Brazilia Army, in the Goiás State, on the east of Distrito Federal. A Geographic Information System (GIS) was built with the objective of realizing th spatial modeling of the environment where a troop can be employed, through differe geographic and thematic data, like soil, vegetation and hydrographic data, among others, wit the objective of improving the necessary support for decision, following the Terrai Meteorological…
