Not Available Joint Vision 2010 utilized operational concepts of Dominant Maneuver, Precision Engagement, Focused Logistics and Full Dimensional Protection with Information Superiority for join warfighting. A key challenge in this vision is understanding how advanced sensors combined with information Superiority can be exploited for a system of systems (SoS) approach. The AFRL vision is to provide networks of sensors, C3 (command, control, and communications) systems, and shooters to enable Network-Centric Warfare. Virtual simulation technologies, leveraged through the collaborative enterprise environment (CEE) concept. The AFRL Sensors Directorate Integrated Demonstrations and Applications Laboratory (IDAL) has the critical CEE simulation technology building blocks to enable a virtual SoS research capability. This proposed effort will provide a cost-effective research capability for evolving these SoS concepts. Phase I & Phase II SBIR research will leverage CEE technologies to integrate the IDAL sensor simulation components with FTI-developed AFRL Information Directorate Global Awareness Virtual Testbed (GAVTB) components to form a distributed virtual simulation environment. An experiment linking the IDAL to other government/industry research facilities will be conducted to demonstrate the utility and benefits of a distributed virtual simulation environment for evolving SoS sensor concepts and technologies.
