Military Applications Using KEEL Technology

1. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Demo - Incorporating Frustration and Tunable Reasoning Model

UAV Demo

Demonstrates the intelligent behavior of two Unmanned Aerial Vehicles by executing the same behavior on the web that can be embedded in a microprocessor controlling a real UAV. A single design can be deployed in a device and on the Internet. (Note: This demo makes use of a 1024 x 768 battlefield.) From a cognitive standpoint this demo uses a slightly enhanced version of the KEEL engine demonstrated in the Command and Control Demo below (collision avoidance added). Updated to include frustration as a goal seeking technique.

2. KEEL Dynamic Graphical Language Source Code for UAV Demo Above

3. Swarm Leadership

Swarm Leadership Demo

UAV "swarms" need to self-organize to select a leader. The swarm will need to reorganize automatically as the environment changes. This demonstration utilizes KEEL "Engines" in each UAV to self-evaluate itself and automatically determine whether it should be the leader or not. This decision is based on a set of inter-related criteria.

4. Adaptive Targeting

Adaptive Targeting Demo

This demonstration uses KEEL Technology to interpret information and apply auditable policies defined in the KEEL dynamic graphical language to determine if and when a target is suitable for attack by an Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV).

This would allow continuous adjustment of the drip rate based on the patient's activity and changing blood pressure.

4. Patient Monitoring / Sensor Monitoring / Event Triggered Monitoring / Time-based Monitoring Demo

Time-based Monitoring Demo

Demonstration allows the user to define expected reactions to medical events such as the case when individual patients metabolize drugs at different rates. Care givers can model expected reactions that are triggered by events and alarm only when unexpected events happen.

5. Chest Pain Risk Factors Demo

Chest Pain Risk Factors Demo

This demonstration shows a KEEL application running on an emulation of a Windows Mobile PDA. This demonstration shows the collection of several risk factors that might be observed when a patient arrives at a hospital complaining of chest pain. This accumulation of risk factors is one of the tools used in evaluating the likelihood that there is a heart problem that needs immediate care. A KEEL engine is accumulating the individual factors to determine an overall risk factor.

6. Triage Symptom Evaluation

Triage Demo

In March of 2022, DARPA released the "In The Moment" (ITM) solicitation that suggested a 4.5 year multi-phase project to develop a tool to support the triage activity in a mass-casualty event. While Compsim did not pursue this research topic, we did create a working cognitive model in less than 2 hours over a weekend. A screen-capture of the cognitive development (research through engine creation) is available at: The following weekend, we created 2 versions of a webpage that can be used on a cell phone to enter symptoms and get a suggested triage decision. Click on the title or thumbnail to get an explaination of the project and a link to the working webpage.
