Network-Centric Warfare Connectivity for Electronic Attack
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The goal of this Phase II SBIR effort is to develop simulation tools for rapidly evolving, integrating, and demonstrating network-centric warfare connectivity technologies for electronic attack in a collaborative, capability-based battlespace. This effort aims to upgrade and develop simulation tools to evolve affordable dual-use man virtual combat simulation technologies that will reduce the cost and time required to develop network-enabled, widely distributed sensor technologies for combat operations. Radiance proposes to develop, upgrade, and enhance the Virtual Combat Laboratory's (VCL) high-fidelity threat models for the development of network-centric warfare connectivity architectures and technologies. In addition, Radiance proposes to upgrade the current network monitoring and recording capabilities (Palantir) to allow improved analysis of sensors, next-generation communication systems, and battlespace management needs. Existing research methodologies for demonstrating and analyzing network-centric technologies are time-consuming, not real-time, and require extensive and costly flight testing. Leveraging the VCL's high-fidelity threat models and network monitoring technology will provide a high-fidelity, real-time simulation environment which can reduce the reliance on open-air range testing. Our strategy to commercialize this product is to design and develop it in a modular, configurable fashion so it is capable of accepting a variety of network messages, both military and commercial.
