Abstract
SpaceWorks Enterprises, Inc. (SEI) seeks government support for the development of a multi-disciplinary autonomous munition simulation and optimization model. The proposed software development would determine optimal guided munitions designs for a given mission scenario, maximizing desired metrics of interest, while preserving design robustness. A flexible and adaptable software architecture would be designed, heavily leveraging existing trajectory propagation and evolutionary optimization algorithms previously developed by SpaceWorks, to ensure that the resulting approach is flexible and capable of supporting a wide variety of munition concepts and engagement scenarios. When completed, the munitions design environment will be able to optimize munitions designs for a wide variety of existing and future adversarial threats.
