CoSAR-TS is funded by the DARPA DAML Program. The project began in
January 2003 and will last for 36 months.
The Objective is to study and develop a demonstrator for Task Support
in a realistic Coalition Search and Rescue scenario to show the value
of linking research at AIAI work on I-X Task Support with IHMC work on
KAoS Agent Domain and Policy Management concepts. DAML representatations,
and DAML-S descriptions of agents and services will be utilized.
eedback to the DAML-S development community will be provided.
The project involves:
- AIAI, University of Edinburgh
- BBN Technologies
