ABSTRACT

Complex mission scenarios are those in which information changes continuously and quickly or scenarios where have large quantities of expensive resources, large number of norms and rules, large number of personnel including, for instance, crimes in the cyber space, computer forensics, computer and digital investigation. Organisations performing in such scenarios may have components in different geographic locations: some are in the battlefield, while others are at their offices. Enabling coordination between these components (i.e., special skills, intelligence, planning, expensive devices, and sophisticated software) in highly unstable environments is a challenging task. The aim of this research is investigate the use of ontology with computational agents to support complex mission scenarios in Forensic Computing. This paper presents a logic- and set-based model to represent scenarios of a formal organisation. In addition to this, it was implemented an outstanding ontology that describes typical mission activities, their relationships, required resources, and constraints. This ontology is used to map a mission to an organisation. Also, we present a realistic ontology schema in Forensic Computing for the Brazilian Federal Police and a concrete case study where agents from a formal organisation are deployed in complex mission scenarios. This ontology can be easily extended for other police or military force. Hence, it is an efficient tool to manage people and resources.
