The Extensible Mobile Agent Architecture (EMAA) is a set of software libraries that are designed to support the development and deployment of distributed agent systems. These libraries provide functionality for creating mobile agents, managing their movement and communication, and ensuring their robustness and reliability in distributed environments.
The references below appear to be discussing the use of intelligent agents in various projects related to information management, situation awareness, and battle command. The text mentions that agents are ideal for adaptive cognition, highly distributed systems, and execution monitoring. The text also mentions that an intelligent, mobile agent requires an agent framework or run-time environment in which to operate, and that a specific agent framework called the Extensible Mobile Agent Architecture (EMAA) has been deployed to many military applications. The text also mentions research on topics such as application reconfiguration in wireless sensor networks, peer-to-peer data lookup for multi-agent systems, and adaptive peer-to-peer agent sensor networks.
- Agent Computing Environment (ACE) is a software framework that provides a common infrastructure for building and deploying distributed, concurrent, and real-time systems. It is designed to support the development of systems that are composed of autonomous, mobile agents that can interact with one another and with their environment. The ACE framework provides a set of libraries and tools that support the creation and management of agents, their communication and mobility, and the handling of system-wide concerns such as security and fault tolerance. It also provides a set of services, such as event handling, thread management, and network communication, that can be used by agents to perform their tasks.
- Fast Connectivity for Coalitions and Agents Project (FastC2AP) is a research project that aims to develop and evaluate technologies and architectures for providing fast and reliable connectivity among coalitions and agents in dynamic and uncertain environments. The goal of the project is to enable the rapid formation and dissolution of coalitions, as well as the efficient communication and coordination among the agents within a coalition. The project is focused on developing new networking protocols and technologies, as well as new methods for coalition formation, management, and dissolution. The project also aims to develop new methods for secure and robust communication among agents and coalitions, while also addressing the challenges of scalability, adaptability, and resilience in such dynamic environments.
- Intelligent Interoperable Agent Toolkit (I2AT) is a software framework for developing intelligent agents that can interoperate with other agents and systems. The goal of I2AT is to provide an easy-to-use, flexible and extensible platform for building intelligent agents that can interact with other agents and systems in a seamless and efficient way.
