Autonomous submarine robotic system

Fabrice LE BARS, Jan SLIWKA, Miroslav ŠEBELA

Abstract


This paper deals with the design of an AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) for the SAUC-E (Student Autonomous Underwater Challenge – Europe) competition. The main
originality of this robot is the combination between the enforcement of the KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) principle with the use of COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) components and simple computer algorithms associated with robust methods using interval analysis to solve movement, localization and detection problems. This ensures the reliability, reproducibility and modularity of each part of the system (with COTS components) as well as guaranteed
results (with interval analysis).

A Description of the Current State of People Position Monitoring in a Built-up Area and NATO Army Buildings

Petr HRŮZA, Miroslav ŠEBELA

Abstract


The experience of contemporary military operations leads to the new anticipated operational environment known as FIBUA (Fight in Built-Up Area). Technological development results in immense increases in the tactical value of small units equipped with special combat systems.
Nowadays, the satellite navigation system GPS (Global Positioning System) is used most often for tracking and monitoring positions of units and individuals; however this system is unreliable in builtup
areas and not available inside buildings at all. The solution of tracking positions of individuals in built-up areas and buildings is dependent particularly on technical equipment. This article presents
some results achieved in our project of defence research dealing with utilization of the localization system.

Czech command and control system taxonomy and ontology

Jan HODICKÝ, Petr HRŮZA

Abstract


The paper deals with the current project in the Czech Armed Forces. It is aimed on command and control taxonomy and ontology development process and its result. First the development process is described in general meaning. Second, ontology classes list is depicts together with the instance examples. Last part of the article shows association between classes. In the end the main advantages of ontology design and implementation are mentioned with the command and control perspective.

Keywords


Ontology, Taxonomy, Command and control, ATOM, Military domain, MENTAL, Network Enabled Capability (NEC).

Ontology in Cyber Defence and Computer Networks

Josef KADERKA

Abstract


The contribution covers some current issues of computer networks and their security and tries to find the trend of future development. Selected recent Cyber Attacks examples are also mentioned and simple example of Cyber Defence taxonomy is given. This area is developing dynamically, and it is not easy to even keep track of the current situation. Therefore, ontology can be prominently used here.

Keywords

Knowledge system support for flight planning process

Petr FRANTIS

Abstract


The article deals with an ontology approach to flight planning process. The rules and documents associated with them differ in individual countries, so a knowledge system based on ontology can help to interpret and understand information and its interconnection in the airspace legal domain.

Keywords


Ontology, Topic Maps, Knowledge system.

SW tools for knowledge management systems

Petr DO

Abstract


The paper deals with software tools that can be used in various stages of development of ontologies which are needed for knowledge-based systems. These tools are usually use for data preparation and also in ontology development. In the form of knowledges gained during the project “MENTAL” is presented a practical using of this software. These tools are presented by – tool for data analysis (TOVEK), tools for creating Topic Maps and ontologies (ATOM, ONOTOA, ONTOPOLY and Protégé).

NEC Ontology

Vlastimil MALY

Abstract


The paper deals with the latest progress in development of Defence Research Project MENTAL. Results of this project should advance better understanding of NATO NEC Principles and Information Management in the CIS area in the Czech Army. The core of this solution is a knowledge portal in the NEC area. Creating basic ontology of the mentioned domain becomes a very important stage on the way to develop this portal. The paper describes the current version of the NEC ontology.

Reusing existing taxonomy in ontology construction

Vojtech ONDRYHAL

Abstract


The paper focuses on ways of reuse of an existing taxonomy in an ontology construction. The paper presents the possibilities of using the taxonomy built in the selected domain when creating its domain ontology. The first part explains the difference between taxonomies and ontologies in different contexts (the meaning of concepts, the language used, etc.). The second part focuses on the description of the specific domain ontology and the use of the existing taxonomy for its building.

Development of Knowledge Management System MENTAL

Ladislav BURITA

Abstract


The article is based on the defence research project “Network Enabled Capability (NEC) Knowledge Management of the Army of the Czech Republic (ACR) – MENTAL”, which is the first research project dealing with the theme of Knowledge Management at the Ministry of Defence (MoD). The theoretical basis of the project is Topic Maps. The key issue for the project solution is designing and creating a suitable ontology.
The paper describes the procedure from the selection of an Upper Ontology through the Core Ontology design to the processing of the Domain Ontology. Ontology definitions are stated and their meaning is explained.
The project aims to create a Knowledge Management System under the ACR NEC administration. The article describes the structure of the system, its elements and relations among them, the functions of these elements and the technology components by means of which the functions are implemented.

Keywords
