Abstract:

Complex engineered systems involve a broad spectrum of technologies and interactive subsystems that must work synergistically in order to achieve the mission goals. The design of such complex and large-scale systems necessarily involves the collaborativeefforts of numerous geographically dispersed groups and design teams associated with private companies, government laboratories, and/or universities that individually focus upon specific subsystems or areas of expertise. Due to the interactions between thesubsystems that comprise the overall system, it is becoming increasingly important to establish a design and analysis infrastructure that facilitates the analysis of these interactions and the collaboration between the individual organizations involved inthe design, analysis, and/or development of such systems. The primary objective of the Phase I effort is to establish the viability of such an infrastructure. The proposed wide-area multi-disciplinary distributed heterogeneous simulation/design/analysisinfrastructure would have immediate application to numerous Air Force programs including the F35, the Global Hawk, the F16 Supplemental Cooling and Power System (SCPS), and the High Altitude Air Ship (HAAS). Moreover, it could be used to facilitate andpromote the collaboration and interaction among the various groups and organizations at different locations as would be the case with the proposed Wright Brothers Institute. The proposed distributed simulation/design/analysis infrastructure wouldfacilitate the collaboration between groups and design teams involved in large-scale system design or development, thereby reducing risk, accelerating development, and thus reducing overall costs. The proposed distributed simulation/design/analysisinfrastructure would also have numerous commercial applications in which complex interacting subsystems are involved including but not limited to the automotive, electric power, electronics, and telecommunications industries.
