Abstract

This paper considers the problem of combating the terroristic threat from a theoretical standpoint. For the sake of developing the theoretical concepts, the basic notions have been singled out, and the subject domain was formalized. The structure of the system serving for estimating the terroristic threat level is examined. The development of ontology, describing the subject domain, was emphasized. Analysis of the processes of ontology creation for such, system and description of the developed ontology are discussed.
