The state of the world is kept in a data store called the operational picture (OP).
For our purpose this comprises both external and internal factors, like positions of contacts and weather conditions, or crew availability and equipment degradation.
In our system the OP is a collection of key-value pairs, but in reality this can be a combination of several databases. In reality, the OP is an estimation about the state of the world, based on interpretations of various data sources like radars, sensors, or network connections.
The important point is that we want the function that determines the quality of a resource for a task can take the OP into account. As such the OP contains mistakes, uncertainties, or might be out of date.
How to deal with uncertain information is not the focus of this paper.
We make the assumption that the OP is accurate enough to allow being taken at face value.
For our purpose the OP comprises both external and internal factors, like positions of contacts and weather conditions, or crew availability and equipment degradation.
In our system the OP is a simple collection of key-value pairs, but in reality it can be a combination of several databases.
The important point is that we enable the function that determines the quality of a resource for a task to take the OP into account.
