2004 NASA Faculty Fellow,
Developed meta-model for fusing information from low-level battlefield sensors into meaningful representation of enemy state
Designed three implementations of meta model using the following: Bayesian Belief Networks, Fuzzy Logic, and Probabilistic Modal Logic
Designed and coded a discrete event simulation to validate meta-model’s ability to predict enemy state based on low level enemy activity
