Agent Based Architectures, Cougaar, Testing


The maturation of multi-agent systems permits increasingly sensitive and security related problems to be addressed. In particular, the Cougaar architecture has demonstrated itself to possess significant scalability and survivability features. In this paper, a wireless door-entry security system built using Cougaar is discussed. The key contribution of this paper is to begin a discussion regarding how such a system can be tested for reliability and accuracy. Testing multi-agent systems is a very beneficial, yet challenging endeavour.
