Adapting Cross-Domain Kill-webs (ACK)
The goal of the Adapting Cross-domain Kill-webs (ACK) program is to develop an overall framework, algorithms, and software prototypes for decentralized construction and adaption of multi-domain (space, air, land, surface, subsurface, cyber) kill webs â€“ i.e. software decision aids to coordinate the selection of the specific sensors, effectors, and support elements across domains to form kill webs delivering desired effects on targets.
