    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a model, method and computer tool for military mission planning. The actions on the battlefield should be planned on the basis of reconnaissance (decision situation recognition) and the possibility of own troops action and counteractions of the enemy. A course of action (CoA) should be verified and we propose a special tool for recommendation of CoA. Therefore, the pattern recognition method for identification of the decision situation is presented in the paper. The decision situation being identified is a basis for choosing CoA because with each decision situation a few typical CoA frames are connected. There is also a short description of the deterministic simulator, which is described on the basis of combat model, taking into account complimentary processes of firing and movement. The toolset presented with the CoA editor, military equipment, simulator manager and multicriteria estimation of CoA.

    ABSTRACT: In the paper the planning process of a land battle is presented. The actions on a battlefield should be planned on the basis of a reconnaissance (decision situation recognition) and possible both own troops action and counteractions of enemy. A course of action (CoA) should be verified and we propose to use the special tool for recommendation of CoA. The core of the tool there is the deterministic simulator which is described on the basis of combat model and considering complementary processes of firing and movement. The toolset is presented along with the scenario editor, military equipment, simulator manager and multicriteria estimation of COA.

    ABSTRACT: Crisis management is a very complicated process. Computer support makes this process more effective and improves its quality. In this paper an approach to modelling, simulation and forecasting the effects of hazards in crisis situations is presented. The classification of hazards is proposed – it has the form of formally defining a threat’s catalogue. In this case the attention is focused on the mathematical model of the security of urban agglomeration. The proposed models and methods are the bases for the distributed decision support system. Last season’s flu virus infected so many people in Poland that the problem of lack of hospital beds appeared. In 2009, several parts of that system – monitoring, early warning and forecasting risks of the influenza virus – were put into practice in the Government Safety Centre. Now, the system named SARNA has over 600 institutional users on the levels of poviat (district) – voivodship and (province) – country. Keywords: decision support, crisis situation, catalogue of threats, security ontology, semantic networks. 1 Introduction The safety of each country, as well as its threats, have multiple sources and dimensions: political, economic, ecological, legal, military, etc. One of the most important dimensions is human security. Most of the identified threats affect large population centres, including particularly the large cities and metropolitan areas. Among many disasters on a worldwide scale, there is one that concerns almost each country of the world. It is the influenza virus (flu) and a new strain, which is called swine influenza (A H1N1). Last season’s flu has infected so many people that the problem of lack of hospital beds appeared. Due to the high risk of

    ABSTRACT: This paper focuses its attention on a project named CARE – Creative Application to Remedy Epidemics. CARE is a subsystem of monitoring, early warning and forecasting system SARNA, which was built at the Military University of Technology and was put into practice in the Government Safety Centre. CARE is a creative software solution that takes advantage of pioneering sociological theories, graph and network theory and the state-of-the-art in software technologies. Its very purpose, of particularly high importance nowadays, is to counter infectious diseases, such as a flu. The paper deals with research of Complex Networks displaying the so called, Scale Free and Small World features, which make them accurate models of many networks – Social Networks in particular. These features on one hand appear to boost efficiency in communication networks and on the other speed up the spreading of many diseases. Keywords: social networks, complex networks, epidemic modeling and simulation, vaccination strategies. 1 Introduction Among many disasters on a worldwide scale there is one that concerns almost every country of the world. This is the influenza virus (flu) and the new strain, which is called swine influenza (A H1N1). Last season’s flu has infected so many people that the problem of lack of hospital beds appeared. Due to the high risk of infection, according to legal acts, the Government Safety Centre (Polish acronym RCB) had to carry out tasks of daily monitoring of influenza and influenza-like illness in the country. Due to this reason and at the request of the RCB, at the Military University of Technology, a dedicated early warning and

    ABSTRACT: Complex operation planning is a very complicated process. Computer support makes this process more effective and improves its quality. A quantitative evaluation of different variants of complex operation plan is especially important. In this paper we propose some quality measures of complex operation plan and methods of calculation of these measures. We applied the concept of CAST logic and stochastic PERT analysis to support military joint operation planning. These methods were implemented in the computer package presented in the paper. By using the method and computer tool an exemplified military joint operation is considered. KeywordsStochastic PERT-CAST logic-joint operation planning-military application

    ABSTRACT: The interactive simulation environment for training (and/or analysis) of military operations is presented as the Simulation Based Operational Training Support System (SBOTSS). The system was constructed in order to provide cost-effective approach of computer assisted exercises and it is an integrated, interactive, many-sided land, analysis and training support model based on particular components equipped with combat, logistics, engineering, electronic warfare and intelligence functions. The idea and model of command and control process applied for the decision automata at the tactical level are presented. The automata executes the two main processes: decision planning process and direct combat control. The decision planning process relating to the automata contains three stages: the identification of a decision situation, the generation of decision variants (course of actions) the variants evaluation and nomination the best variant of these, which satisfy the proposed criteria. The particular approach to identification of decision situation and variants of action are presented. The procedure of variants generation based on some kind of pre-simulation process contains the evaluation module, which allows us the best choice of action plan according to specified criteria. The direct combat control process contains such phases, like command, reporting and reaction to fault situations. Some results of the simulation process including the decisions made by automata is considered. The calibration process on the basis of battle scenarios is described and presented

    ABSTRACT: Polish distributed and interactive environment for training of combat or peace support operations is presented. As a starting point in modelling process a specific theoretical game is considered. Game theory offers good "language of conflict". So we define military conflict game in general sense and transit it to the next phases of modelling combat process model, decision model, and simulation model. The distribution of conflict model components is natural and results from the real system's component distribution. The generic model of combat process as a multivariate stochastic process is concerned. The transition between the stochastic model and simulation model is shown. The global decision problem is formulated for each side as a stochastic programming problem with many criteria. The main conclusion of the theoretical analysis is the decision variable in such complex situation there is a decision rule and the criterion can be considered as a risk function, defined on the basis of predicted losses. However, real decision process seems to be far from optimal solution, we should indicate the direction of improvement.
