In this paper, we address the problems faced by a group of agents lacking global knowledge and global communications, by the introduction of a belief sharing mechanism. The Belief-Desire-Intention (BDI) architecture lacks a framework that would facilitate effective communication, to bring about situational awareness among agents in an insecure environment. We extend the BDI architecture with the concept of situational awareness. Agents can gain awareness by exchanging beliefs, ascertaining the truth of such retrieved beliefs and measuring the credibility of a peer agent. Aware-BDI mainly increases the situational awareness of the agents, thereby increasing operationalefficiency and probability of attack detection.
