Abstract
Resource optimization strategies for engaging multi-stage, long-range missiles carrying multiple warheads during the ascent phase is an area of interest to MDA and the larger DoD community. The ability to rapidly predict the outcomes of extremely large numbers of decision permutations is crucial in allowing commanders to make more efficient decisions in time-critical operational settings. WarpIV Technologies, Inc. proposes extending its new five-dimensional simulation technology known as HyperWarpSpeed for computationally complex real-time estimation, prediction, and resource optimization problems. This technology enables the instantaneous spawning and exploration of multiple behavior timelines at key decision points within a single simulation execution while transparently harnessing the power of parallel and distributed processing resources. By sharing computations that are otherwise repeated in Monte Carlo experiments, HyperWarpSpeed has shown to provide orders of magnitude speedup over traditional approaches in preliminary studies. All HyperWarpSpeed event processing is rollbackable, which makes this technology prime to support real-time predictions with live data feeds that continually calibrate the models. In this sense, predictions are always based on best estimates of the dynamically changing current world state.
