Bayesian Games for Threat Prediction and Situation Analysis
Higher levels of the JDL model call for prediction of future development and awareness of the development of a situation. Since the situations handled by Command and Control systems develop by actions performed by opposing agents, pure probabilistic or evidential techniques are not quite sufficient tools for prediction. Game theoretic tools can give an improved appreciation of the real uncertainty in this prediction task, and also be a tool in the planning process. We review recent developments in game theory and apply them in a decision support tool for Command and Control situation awareness enhancements.
