IJIDSS proposes and fosters discussion on the development of novel computational intelligence techniques and their application to support systems used by defence personnel. The scope of application covers strategic, tactical and operational decision-making across the entire defence sector, covering areas such as intelligence gathering and analysis, capability assessment, tactics modelling and evaluation and logistics management as well as military systems integration and both semi-autonomous and autonomous systems.


 Topics covered include

  • Agent-based systems
  • Machine learning
  • Situation awareness
  • Reasoning models
  • Human/agent teams
  • Cognitive modelling
  • Experimental design
  • Behaviour modelling
  • Knowledge management
  • Systems of systems
  • Data mining

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJIDSS are to establish an effective channel of communication between defence researchers. It also aims to develop a synergy between academic and defence research. In this regard, the journal will provide academic researchers with interesting and challenging applications to focus their research activities. Defence researchers will be kept up to date with the latest advances in computational intelligence.


IJIDSS provides a vehicle to help defence personnel, policy makers and both defence and academic researchers with an interest in intelligent defence support systems, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.


IJIDSS publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in Defence and Computational Intelligence will occasionally be published.
