This paper proposes a new model of situation management in distributed dynamic systems, such as telecommunication networks, modern battlespaces, and disaster relief operations. The proposed model is based a multi-agent systems approach, where the Belief-Desire-Intension agent architecture has been expanded by an advanced interpretation cycle. The critical feature of the advancement is the replacement of the traditional event-plan paradigm with a new event-situation-plan paradigm, which allows recognition of more complex operational situations.
