The operational performance desired for autonomous vehicles in the battlefield requires new approaches in algorithm design and computation. Our design, Polymorphic Cognitive Agent Architecture (PCAA), is a hardware-software system that supports the requirements for implementing a dynamic multi-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) mission planning application using cognitive architectures. We describe the requirements for our application, and discuss the challenges of using current “non-cognitive” algorithms to solve this problem and the reasons this motivates our experiment.
