Abstract
The primary objective of the proposed work is to demonstrate proof of concept for a directed energy system analysis and design environment. This analysis and design environment will be based upon Distributed Heterogeneous Simulation (DHS) technology. DHS allows the interconnection of models developed in different simulation languages running on different computing platforms to form an integrated system simulation. The Phase I effort will focus on incorporating high-power microwave device models into a simulation of the electric power system of an unmanned aerial vehicle. The simulation will be used to evaluate the steady-state and transient system performance as well as to carry out system/component design studies. PCKA will collaborate with Lockheed Martin and the Directed Energy Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory to obtain component models and to ensure the effort is directed toward specific Air Force needs.
