Abstract
Current/next generation aircraft will utilize capabilities-based system of systems (SoS) concepts to enhance combat operations. SoS concepts involve seamless connectivity of external (to a combat aircraft) Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) assets, and internal situational awareness/threat warning systems in joint battlespace environments. Integrated laboratory capabilities provide the technologies to enable the development/evolution of SoS concepts/technologies for current and next generation aircraft through SoS synthetic battlespace simulation. These laboratory capabilities are addressing the stringent requirements for evolving/maturing/demonstrating Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Sensor Resource Management (SRM) technologies as an integral part of SoS concepts/solutions. Currently radar components of these laboratory configurations lack the fidelity and seamless integration/correlation to support the evolution/maturation/evaluation of advanced ISR and SRM technologies. Defense Research Associates (DRA) proposes to provide a robust, seamlessly integrated, high fidelity Collaborative Radar Environment Simulation Server (CRESS) to address the current deficiencies in existing laboratory SoS test beds. DRA will apply state-of-the-art simulation, visualization and integration tools while leveraging current national asset data (Xpatch) scattering centers to provide the required multi-mode sensor capability. The CRESS will provide the radar capabilities to support the evolution of ISR and SRM technologies and commercial capabilities to weather/meteorological training the video gaming industries.
