Abstract
The System Technology Associates, Inc. (STAI) Phase I End to End Communication Test Bed- Tool Set Architecture supports a growth path within the President's decision to enhanced missile defense protection for U.S. and Europe. Reference: MDA Director at Senate Hearings 9-24-09. The overall MDA integrated fire control capability as specified in the "Phased Adaptive Approach" requires the development of faster and more accurate command and control, Battle Management and Communication capability. STAI is strategically aligned to provide the MDA with an increased Mission Readiness of End-to-End Communication System Health Architectures as established in SBIR topic MDA08-037. Further, The STAI End to End Test Bed supports the required cost effective approach indicated by the MDA Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 Budget (09-MDA-4527) to bolster transportable regional defense capabilities as well as maintaining the ground-based midcourse capability. Both the regional and ground-base path forward will benefit by the End to End Communication Test bed's ability to establish and analyze latency phenomena, nuclear and natural scintillation, and its impact on a unified C2BMC System operations under the net centric CTTO modes. Additionally, this STAI effort contributes to the BDMS performance evaluation strategy against an ever increasing missile threat. Improved communication system latency is a key requirement to unify integrated ballistic missile defense capability for Assent Phase Intercepts (API) and ground -based intercepts. "Integrating autonomous missile defense elements expands the area protected and increases the protection without incurring additional force structure costs." The End to End Communication Test Bed supports a growth path within the President's decision to enhanced missile defense protection for U.S. and Europe. Reference: MDA Director at Senate Hearings 9-24-09. The overall MDA integrated fire control capability as specified in the "Phased Adaptive Approach" requires the development of faster and more accurate command and control, Battle Management and Communication capability.
