The aim of the paper is to summarize the experience gained from the research and the constructions of the Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) based on the ontology engineering. Computational ontologies are the means to formally model the structure of a system, to discover the entities and relations that emerge from its observation, and which are useful to the system purposes. In our projects, we utilize the Topic Maps Theory and the tools based on this technology (e.g. ATOM2). The key point of

During the process, the text mining tools (e.g. TOVEK) and other analytical tools are used. At the end of the paper, the summary of the experience with the methodology application is presented. 76 L. Buřita, K. Halouzka, V. Malý and V. Ondryhal is assured by successful cooperation of researchers from the University of Defence with the TOVEK [2] and AION [3] companies. The most important activity concerning the KMS is the design and development of an appropriate ontology, which constitutes a formal framework for storing the knowledge, creating links between knowledge and ontology concepts, and establishing connections to concepts and pieces of knowledge of vital documents, which are connected with the area in focus. Why is the solution of the KMS based on the Topic Maps (TM) principle so good? The main reason is that knowledge representation is intuitive; it keeps information in context, and conforms to human thinking more than other knowledge organization principles. The TM [4] model is described in Chapter 3. The application area of TM is based on the environment of libraries and work with documents, supported by project Ontopia [5] . After the introduction, the literature review follows; the next theoretical chapter focuses on TM as a basis of the KMS; next is the main part of the article about ontology development and KMS examples; the last part is the conclusion.
