Abstract:

ABSTRACT: The goal of the Agile Workstation for a Core Architecture Model for Space (AWCAMS) is to provide better understanding of complex space systems, improve communications among key players in the research and development process, and aid in making better acquisition decisions for space. AWCAMS will be an open-source, standards-based framework that integrates with existing DoD and Air Force resources and environments. AWCAMS will include an agile extensible, tailorable technical framework; a core architecture model for space with initial test data defining an illustrative space system; customizable role-based dashboards for architecting, engineering, and analysis; and a prototype interface for interfacing with external engineering and simulation tools. BENEFIT: AWCAMS will provide a quantitative assessment of the technology trade space and alternative architectures to determine the utility and benefit of proposed and existing technologies, and support parametric sensitivity analysis for systems and systems of systems. AWCAMS will enable the Air Force to improve cross-functional development, increase interoperability, and promote integrated activities supported by space systems. AWCAMS has significant commercial applications to many industries, including banking, utilities, and communications, where architecture-based systems engineering would have high payoff due to the complexity of their systems.
