RescueModel: A multi-agent simulation of bushfire disaster management. The RescueModel project is a vehicle for research into multi-agent systems, architectures, and strategies. It builds on the theoretical, practical, and experimental base of a decade of beliefs-desires-intentions (BDI) agent systems development. This paper describes a project that will bring together the environmental richness found usually in large scale military operations research simulations with the architectural richness of agent models often researched in universities. Proposed applications of RescueModel include search and rescue and disaster response studies.
