Abstract
THE EFFORT OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP AN INTERACTIVE MODEL TO DETERMINE SPACE SYSTEMS SUPPORT REQUIREMENTS, ENABLE SYSTEM OPERATING VULNERABILITY AND COST DRIVER ASSESSMENTS, AND FACILITATE TRADE STUDIES. THE CONCEPT FOR THE INTERACTIVE DATA BASE IS TO TIE AN ESTABLISHED EXPERT SYSTEM SHELL WITH AN EXISTING DATA BASE SHELL THAT WILL ACCOMMODATE INTERACTIVE PROCESSING WITH OTHER ALGORITHM MODULES DEDICATED TO SPECIFIC TECHNOLOGY OR ISSUE AREAS. PHASE I WILL ENTAIL A SIMPLE STRUCTURING OF THE EXPERT SYSTEM AND DATA BASE SHELLS, AS WELL AS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A STRAW ALGORITHM WHERE RELEVANT SYSTEM PARAMETERS ARE IDENTIFIED AND THEIR RELATIONSHIPS WITH OPERATIONS AND SUPPORT CAPABILITIES MODELED. THE RESULT OF PHASE I WILL BE A PROOF OF CONCEPT. PHASE II WILL INVESTIGATE SPECIFIC SYSTEM CONCEPTS AND DEVELOP GENERIC SUBSYSTEM BUILDING BLOCKS TO CONSTRUCT THE SYSTEM OF INTEREST AND THE USER WILL BE ABLE TO PERFORM SYSTEM OPERATIONS AND COST ANALYSES, TRADE STUDIES, AND SYSTEM IMPACT ASSESSMENT FOR CHANGESIS SUBSYSTEM OR OPERATIONAL PARAMETERS. THE INTERACTIVE NATURE OF THE RESULTING PROGRAM WILL ENABLE PLANNERS TO APPROACH PROGRAM ASSESSMENTS (INCLUDING SYSTEM INTEGRATION) FROM VIRTUALLY ANY ASPECT.
