In this project Wagner Associates and John Hopkins University/Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) will develop an Unmanned Vehicle Effectiveness Evaluation System (UVEES) using a mix of analytic and Monte Carlo techniques. The proposed UVEES will model the behavior of each Unmanned Vehicle (UV), including fully autonomous UVs and UVs operating under manual control. UVEES will also include digital interfaces to all of the relevant UV systems so that information concerning recommended plans, as well as plans currently being executed, can be obtained automatically. In addition, UVEES will utilize accurate UV sensor models, since many of the operationally relevant MOPs will be calculated by determining how effectively the UVs will conduct such Naval missions as Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) in support of Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Mine Warfare (MIW) and/or Surface Warfare (SUW) operations. In addition to determining the effectiveness of UV mission plans and the effects of changes to these plans, UVEES will also determine the robustness of the plans and the vulnerability of the UVs carrying out these plans.
