Nutronics, Inc. proposes to develop a modeling and simulation tool, the High Energy Laser Requirements Analysis, and Engineering (HEL-RAE) tool to meet the requirements defined by MDA Topic MDA15-016, General Wave-Optics Based Scaling Laws for Multiple/Obscured Apertures.The HEL-RAE tool is built from the existing foundation of the Barchers Covariance Code (BCC) tool.The BCC tool has been well validated against a large volume of field test data in a wide range of conditions with three different levels of turbulence compensation.The BCC tool already includes capability to model tiled and phased array HEL weapon systemsthus already meeting the requirements called for by this MDA topic.The HEL-RAE tool initial release, delivered at the close of a Phase II effort, will enable the Government to perform accurate trade studies for any application and with nearly any potential HEL weapon system configuration.The HEL-RAE tool will also include a Scaling Law version of BCC that will replace the slowest functions with faster running scaling law calculations.The HEL-RAE tool will be delivered with multiple interface levels from Top Level to Typical User to Expert to allow for everything from drop-down menu automated scenario generation to source code level simulation control.
