Title: OptDef: BMDS-Level Simulation Optimization
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: HQ0006-09-C-7151
Award Amount: $99,981.00
 

Abstract:

OptTek proposes to create a new methodology and tool set, "OptDef," that will provide MDA a capability to optimize Ballistic Missile Defense systems-a capability that will enable MDA to answer credibly not only "what if?," but also "what's best?" and "why this and not that?" OptDef will build on proven OptTek-proprietary technologies in simulation optimization that will leverage MDA's investment in such credible and accredited BMDS-level performance tools as SABER, CAPS, I-SIM, DE Sim and LIDS. OptDef will significantly increase the effective utility of BMDS simulation models, allowing analysts to optimize more than 10,000 continuous and/or discrete system decision variables. OptDef's technology will seamlessly integrate with MDA simulation systems without modifying or affecting the simulation systems in any way. Toward fulfillment of this SBIR's long-term objective, Phase I will address the following technical objectives: Provide and validate initial formulation of OptDef framework and technical requirements Develop and verify initial design concept for the OptDef framework and enabling software components, including presentation of BMDS-level performance Demonstrate proof-of-concept of key enabling simulation optimization using prototype OptDef optimization software
