Abstract
Current/next generation aircraft will utilize capabilities-based system of systems (SoS) concepts to enhance combat operations. SoS concepts involve the seamless connectivity of external (to a combat aircraft) Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) assets, and internal situational awareness and threat warning systems in joint battlespace environments. Integrated laboratory capabilities provide the key technologies to enable the rapid 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 testbeds. DRA will apply state-of-the-art simulation, visualization and integration tools while leveraging current national asset data (Xpatch) to provide the required. 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.
