Abstract
The System-of-Systems (SoS) environment is composed of multiple platforms possessing both receiver and transmitter resources. To use these resources to effectively combat the evolving complexity of the threat environment, resource management techniques must evolve to apply the best combination of resources to successfully achieve mission objectives. Integrated laboratory capabilities provide technologies to enable the development/evolution of SoS AEA concepts/technologies through synthetic battlespace simulation and address the stringent requirements for evolving/maturing/demonstrating Electronic Attack Resource Management (EA RM) technologies for SoS AEA concepts/solutions. These laboratory configurations lack capabilities to fully support the evolution/maturation/evaluation of SoS AEA technologies. Defense Research Associates (DRA) will provide a Real-Time Electronic Attack Resource Management Testbed (REART) to address the deficiencies in existing laboratory SoS testbeds. DRA will apply state-of-the-art simulation tools and innovative integration technologies to develop the required SRM capability. DRA will utilize the real-time simulation capability in the Sensors Directorate Virtual Combat Laboratory (VCL) and Integrated Demonstrations and Applications Laboratory (IDAL) to demonstrate the architecture's feasibility. During Phase II, DRA will implement a prototype capability using the VCL as a testbed and demonstrate key performance characteristics. The Phase II effort will provide a building-block capability for evolution of advanced electronic attack sensor resource management technology.
