Simulation Toolkits for Switching Satellite Communications Systems
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The objective of this Phase I effort is to define a core model of a packet/circuit switched satellite system, based on a commercial modeling and simulation tool, which can be leveraged in future simulation efforts. The functions to be simulated in the future and the metrics to be obtained in these simulations will be determined and prioritized so that the core model contains the appropriate detail and is easily adaptable to a variety of future applications. In addition to defining the core model, key portions of the model will be implemented and demonstrated to prove the feasibility of this concept. Finally, a users manual will be developed to provide an understanding of the core model and guidance on how to adapt the model to support a variety of simulations. The Phase II effort will build on Phase I by completing the implementation of the core model. This model will be exercised to verify and validate the model. Finally, this model will be demonstrated and delivered with documentation to provide guidance on using the core model as the basis for future models and simulations.
