Abstract
THE NDI METHOD OF PROCUREMENT FOR ARMY COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS HAS BROUGHT ABOUT A REDUCTION OF THE LONG LEAD TIMES FOR SYSTEM DEPLOYMENT. A RESULTING CONCERN IS THAT SOME REQUIRED ITEMS REMAIN UNSPECIFIED AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE, AND ARE LEFT TO BE ADDRESSED SEPARATELY. SPECIFICALLY, THE ARMY'S MOBILE SUBSCRIBER EQUIPMENT (MSE) PROCUREMENT DOES NOT ALLOW THE INCORPORATION OF ECCM INTO THE SYSTEM. THE NEED FOR ESM AND ECCM HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED IN A NUMBER OF DOCUMENTED SOURCES. THIS PROPOSAL PROVIDES FACILITIES TO SUPPORT THE SOLUTION OF THIS PROBLEM. USING AI TECHNIQUES, PSI HAS DEVELOPED AN EXPERT SYSTEM APPROACH TO BUILDING SIMULATIONS FOR RAPID DESIGN, TEST,AND EVALUATION OF COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS, AND THEIR VULNERABILITIES. THUS, A SIMULATION FACILITY COULD BE BUILT QUICKLY FOR TEST AND EVALUATION OF ESM. USING PSI'S SIMULATION TOOLS AND THE MODEL LIBRARIES, THIS FACILITY COULD GROW WITH THE ADDED KNOWLEDGE OF EXPERT USERS. THE FACILITY ITSELF CAN THEN BE GROWN TO BECOME AN EXPERT SYSTEM FOR DESIGN, TEST, AND EVALUATION OF ESM AND ECCM FEATURES TO SUPPORT MSE TYPE COMMUNICATIONS. SUCH A FACILITY COULD ALSO BE USED FOR RAPID PROTOTYPING OF SYSTEM MODELS TO BE USED IN VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT.
