In this thesis we are concerned with developing formal and representational mechanisms for reasoning with inconsistent information. Strictly speaking there are two conceptually distinct senses in which we are interested in reasoning with inconsistent information. In one sense, we are interested in using logical deduction to draw inferences in a symbolic system. More specifically, we are interested in mechanisms that can continue to perform deduction in a reasonable manner despite the threat of inconsistencies as a direct result of errors or misrepresentations. So in this sense we are interested in inconsistency-tolerant or paraconsistent deduction. … ¶ In this thesis we adopt a novel framework to unify both logic-as-deduction and logic-as-representation approaches to reasoning with inconsistent information. … ¶; yes

Point of Contact: Lieutenant Nikolaos Bekatoros HN Naval Postgraduate School School of Operational and Information Sciences Valtetsiou 130 Athens, Greece 13231 0030-6976401213 nbekatoros@hotmail.com; In today’s information age teams reside in multi-participant problem solving processes that operate within both the physical and virtual environment (Gibson & Cohen, 2003). Teams in order to collaborate form their own “space of constraints” whether they act in the physical, the virtual environment or in both (Bordetsky, 1996). Scholars have examined teams that operate in the physical space (such as cliques by Poran & Sabastien, 1998; and teams in general by Salas et. al., 1992) or in the virtual space (Gibson & Cohen, 2003; Yoo, 2001) and examined coordination and collaboration within committees using the majority rule (Bordetsky, 1996; Miller & Page, 2007). In addition, teams’ decomposition applies when complex problems arise (e.g. swarm groups as proposed by Arquilla, J. & Ronfeldt, D, 2000). Hence, a literature gap exists in addressing the dynamic, in terms of time, collaboration process that exists within committees with fluidic participation which operate in both the virtual and physical environment. In order to address this issue...

El fenómeno blog ha provocado una forma natural de agrupación y comunicación entre aquellos que tienen inquietudes afines. Dentro del ámbito científico ha sucedido de la misma manera, creando comunidades de especial interés en un contexto en el que los blogs se consolidan como fuente de información y herramienta complementaria a la investigación. Si bien la libertad por parte del autor a la hora de ofrecer y organizar sus contenidos puede considerarse una de las principales virtudes y factor desencadenante del éxito de los blogs, también se convierte en uno de sus principales problemas. Los blogs, sus contenidos y sus comunidades son difícilmente identificables, clasificables y cuantificables, constituyendo un todo difuso bajo la denominación de blogosfera que en algunos casos impide la puesta en valor de su contenido. Mediante este artículo se pretende identificar los blogs relacionados con la Biblioteconomía y Documentación en España, su autoría, sus contenidos y sus relaciones para clarificar si se puede realmente hablar de una Biblogsfera.; ABSTRACT: The blog phenomenon has meant a natural way of grouping and establishing communication amongst those who have similar concerns. This has happened the same way in the field of science...

Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited; Multi National Force (MNF) operations recognize the existence of shared national interests in a specific geographic region. Furthermore, MNF operations seek to standardize some basic concepts and processes that will promote habits of cooperation, increased dialogue, and provide for baseline Coalition/Combined Task Force (CCTF) operational concepts. This thesis and its' recommendation for a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) are aimed at improving interoperability and CCTF operational readiness. The SOP will focus on the spectrum of Information Operations (IO) with regards to Military Operations Other Than War (MOOTW) and Small Scale Contingencies (SSC) during MNF operations. First, existing doctrine and cases will be analyzed to develop a foundation for this study. This thesis will seek to identify the existing IO procedures to be utilized during MNF operations. Next, exercise observations and lessons learned reviews serve as the basis for IO SOP Annex development to support the MNF SOP.; Lieutenant, United States Navy

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; Information is the single most important part of the decision-making process. There are many theories and models of decision-making processes that apply to general decisions and others that are for very specific purposes. No single theory/model applies to all decisions. This thesis identifies several relevant theories/models that are both general and specific and explores each process and how information works within and through them to reach a decision. This exposes commonalities that all the theories/models share. They are identification of the scene, the desired end state, and how to reach the desired end state. The successful use of a theory/model requires the person(s) choosing to utilize a theory/model to address one or more of these common criteria to reach the best decision possible. Additionally, the type of situation and the personalities of the person(s) making the decision impact that decision. The person(s) making the decision should understand and know this information and how it influences the decision-making process. Information influences the decision-making process by influencing how the common criteria are answered, how a decision maker responds to the information environment effects...

Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited; Information Warfare targeting has long been a crucial, but unrecognized, part of military operations. From Sun Tzu's targeting of the enemy's will to fight, to today's information-centric warfare, it is those who have understood the techniques and applications of Information Warfare targeting who have most often prevailed. As critical as it is to our success, it is a topic that is controversial, often misunderstood, and subject to various interpretations. This thesis examines the IW targeting process, consisting of people, information, systems, and the interaction between the function of targeting and IW. In the Information Age, IW has been recognized as viable warfare area. However, IW Targeting cannot be treated as traditional targeting utilized by other warfare areas. This thesis is intended to serve as a guide for the study of this topic and provides an instructional program designed to satisfy the requirement for a coherent instructional program on IW Targeting. IW targeting affects every facet of warfare and in turn is affected by these facets. In preparing for a future that calls for maximizing the effects while minimizing the effort, it is critical that we understand the process in order to remain effective.; Lieutenant Commander...

Approved for public release; distribution in unlimited.; By using visualization best practices and embedding them in information technology (IT), we believe that the Department of Defense can improve its ability to display multi-variant information. The focus of this research is to design a visual information solution, based on best practices for displaying performance data visually, to the Electronic Military Personnel Record System (EMPRS). Ultimately, our goal is to improve the overall effectiveness and objectivity of the Navy's selection board processes by providing a re-engineered, web-based, graphical solution to the visual displays currently in use by selection boards. The current Navy selection board voting process uses tabular forms displayed across five screens in a small theater-like setting. The forms are displayed very quickly allowing board members very little time to mentally assimilate the quantitative data dispersed over a wide area. In our model, we distill the data into a single graphical display, thus reducing the cognitive computing requirements of the board members. We used the Knowledge Value Added methodology to determine the proposal's relative effectiveness and developed a prototype as a proof of concept. With this study and follow on recommendations...

Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; In this thesis I examine the theory of Valued Information at the Right Time (VIRT) and the benefits its implementation can provide to the Navy's best example of accurate information-sharing, the Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC). The primary premise of VIRT is that only information which has some value to the user and could impact mission accomplishment should be allowed to flow from a source to the user. If information has little or no value to the individual it is destined for, it must simply be regarded as overhead and should not be sent/received. Using a simple simulation I show in this thesis that VIRT has the potential to provide benefits of orders of magnitude versus a non-VIRT implementation. The Navy's CEC program represents a premier air track data sharing mechanism. It enables ships augmented with this capability and residing on the network to share fire control quality information on the individual parameters of air tracks such as location, course, speed, and altitude. There is a place for VIRT implementation within CEC. Such an implementation can prove beneficial both to CEC as an internal user of information and also as a supplier to external entities of its valuable track information. Finally...

The broad use of information systems within organizations has led to an increased appreciation of the need to ensure that all users be aware of basic concepts in Information Assurance (IA). The Department of Defense (DOD) addressed the idea of user awareness in DOD Directive 8750.1. This directive requires that all users of DOD information systems undergo an initial IA awareness orientation followed by annual refresher instruction. This thesis created a CyberCIEGE campaign for the Naval Postgraduate School's CyberCIEGE project that will fulfill Navy requirements to meet DOD Directive 8750.1. The first portion of this thesis is an analysis of four IA programs and products. Requirements for Navy IA awareness and training products were developed from this analysis. The second part of this thesis is a description of two CyberCIEGE scenarios that were created to fulfill these requirements. The first scenario focuses on basic IA awareness and emphasizes information that the Navy should reinforce. The scenario is intended for all users of Navy information systems. The second scenario is intended for technical users and addresses more advanced concepts and technical considerations. The technical user scenario emphasizes skill application and problem solving.

The theories supporting Network Centric Warfare (NCW) continue to mold the tactical use of U.S. forces throughout the global warfare environment. This thesis research will correlate the four tenets of NCW to the tactical employment of the Naval Postgraduate School's LRV. The four tenets of NCW are: 1. A robustly networked force improves information sharing. 2. Information sharing and collaboration enhance the quality of information and shared situational awareness. 3. Shared situational awareness enables self-synchronization. 4. These, in turn, dramatically increase mission effectiveness. The faculty and students at NPS are dedicated to researching methods to leverage science and technology in order to maximize the combat effectiveness of U.S. and allied forces. In teaming with our primary sponsor, U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM), NPS has developed the Tactical Network Topology (TNT) series of experiments aimed at providing the warfighter information solutions for the battle space. The NPS LRV was derived from an operational requirement to have a mobile C4I/ISR platform that provides enhanced real-time information sharing to tactically employed units. Total force combat effectiveness is growing more reliant on agile means of information sharing. Wireless communications and collaborative technologies are essential to ensuring dynamic...
