I ran the search and got the expected articles links.... Why did yall get such varying results? Irony? Umm. No. Conspiracy? Ummm most definitely no.
User error? Most likely.
Frakking tin foil hat wearers. Lol
JADE (Joint Assistant for Deployment and Execution) is a knowledge-based mixed-initiative system that supports force deployment planning and management. JADE uses case-based and generative planning methods to support the development
of large-scale, complex deployment plans in minimal time.
JADE incorporates the technology of three tools:
Prodigy-Analogy (a combined case-based and generative planner developed by Carnegie Mellon University);
ForMAT (Force Management and Analysis Tool) that supports case-based force deployment planning developed by BBN Technologies);
and PARKA (a highly-indexed knowledge based management system developed by the University of Maryland).
With JADE, a military planner can build a preliminary force deployment plan, including the Time Phased Force Deployment Data (TPFDD) in less than one hour. This speed in plan construction is possible because JADE supports the rapid retrieval and reuse of previous plan elements for use in the development of new plans.
In addition, JADE employs an easy to use map-oriented drag and drop interface where force modules (FMs) from previous plans (cases) whose force capabilities and composition match the requirements of the current situation can be dragged from the case library and dropped onto a geographic destination. Plan modification and/or adaption is supported through remindings, e.g., each time that a force module is created or is copied into a plan (TPFDD) the user is automatically reminded of the need for geographical changes.
Upon my searching I have found this to be interestingly plausible. Homeland Eradication Of Local Militants.
