Abstract

This article gives an overview on how multinational military planners can be supported by Knowledge Bases based on Semantic Web Technologies. For this, first the context-specific problems are introduced, followed by a brief description of latest enabling Technologies for Knowledge-Modelling and Analysis. In particular the problems of instance-modeling and abstraction as well as some downsides of inference engines based on First-Order-Logic (FOL) compared to Second-Order-Logic are briefly outlined. An SOL based approach for the analysis of objectives-systems is conceptually shown finalized by an example from the Effects Based Approach to Operations (EBAO) context. The conclusion identifies upsides as well as problems and subjects to improvement.
