Automation of Integrated Intelligent Decision Support System for Missile Selection based on Multi-Criteria Decision Aid During War and Training
Various levels of automation that can be introduced in i-MiDeSS from where the operator has no say in the
decision-making process to optimum levels of automation where the designed system makes only recommendations and the
operator will have final say in missile selection process. Development and implementation ofi-MiDeSS to support intelligent
decision making is an interesting area of research that has gained importance in recent years. Due to the increased
complexity in decision making for selecting the most suitable missile to launch during war and training, an active
involvement of the operator and thei-MiDeSS in an intelligent way is necessary for the final decision process. The aim of
this research paper is to develop an algorithm for integrated Missile Decision Support System (i-MiDeSS), which would
recommend the most optimal missile for a given target. Thei-MiDeSS takes the decision on the choice of missile based on
rule-based decision-making algorithm which is explained in the paper. This i-MiDeSS will assist military commanders to
take real time and accurate decision on the appropriate missile for specific war and training scenarios.
