Abstract
Software for analyzing documents on the net to detect specific categories of occurrences is in great demand. In the current world where detecting terrorist threats is critical there is a great need for such systems. One of the critical application areas of such software is the automatic detection of a national infrastructure emergency. In this research an agent-based generic architecture for emergency warning systems is proposed and implemented. This system, called the National Infrastructure Emergency Warning System (NIEWS), is designed to analyze given documents, to detect threats, and to report possible threats with the necessary information to the appropriate users autonomously. In addition, a systematic analysis framework to detect emergencies on the subject of defensive information warfare is designated and implemented through a knowledge base. The developed system along with the knowledge base is implemented and successfully deployed to Strategic Crisis Exercise (SCE) at the United State Army War College (USAWC), saving a good amount of money by replacing human SMEs (subject matter experts) in the SCE.

Abstract
특정한 사건의 발생을 감지하기 위해서 인터넷 상의 문서들을 분석하는 소프트웨어는 매우 유용하다. 특히, 오늘 날과 같이 테러의 위협을 감지하는 것이 결정적으로 중요한 시점에서 이러한 시스템의 필요성은 더욱 크다고 할 수 있다. 이러한 소프트웨어의 중요한 응용분야 가운데 하나는, 자동으로 국가 기반의 위기를 탐지해 주는 시스템일 것이다. 본 논문에서는 위기 경보 시스템을 위한 에이전트 기반의 일반적 아키텍처를 제안하고 구현하였다. NIEWS (National Infrastructure Emergency Warning System)라고 명명된 이 시스템은 주어진 문서를 분석하여, 위협을 감지하고, 가능성 있는 위협들을 필요한 정보와 함께 적절한 사용자에게 자동으로 보고해 주도록 설계되었다. 이와 아울러, 본 연구에서는 방어적 정보전에 관련된 위기를 감지하기 위한 체계적인 분석 틀이 고안되고 지식베이스로 구현되었다. 본 연구에서 개발된 시스템과 지식기반은 실제로 구현되고, 미육군 전쟁대학의 전략 시뮬레이션 훈련인 SCE (Strategic Crisis Exercise)에 설치되어 활용 되었으며, 여기서 SCE에 필요한 고비용의 분야별 전문가 (SME: subject matter expert)들을 대체 함으로써 많은 비용을 절감할 수 있었다.
