This paper is an extension to and revision of Gonzalez and Ahlers’ definition of the Context-Based Reasoning Paradigm. Included are rigorous definitions of all terms and components applicable to CxBR models along with a discussion on how and where these models store and execute tactical knowledge. In addition, new terms and concepts are introduced that justify the need for a revised specification and reflect the research done to and with CxBR over the past five years. Finally, this paper includes a description of a physically implemented CxBR model, with an emphasis on how the defined components play a role in its functionality.
