Abstract
Sentar has teamed with SPARTA to design and develop a Scaleable Engagement Coordination (SEC) Test Bed for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). The SEC test bed will interface Sentar' scaleable BMC3 prototype with SPARTA's Monte-Carlo ObjectOriented System Evaluator (MOOSE), the EADTB, and the BMD Benchmark Tool. This combination will provide the government with an integrated system capable of supporting metrics based evaluations of engagement coordination within a hierarchical battlemanagement architecture. This SEC Test Bed will also be able to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of GMD engagement planning by utilizing advanced algorithms and methods for coordinating with other layers of defense, as well as for exploitingsensor, weapon, and communication coordination. The combination will lead to an easily scaleable capability within which to explore BMC3 alternatives that will lead to information superiority, higher levels of battle space awareness, and betterdistributed dynamic decision making. The direct benefits of the SEC Test Bed will include a capability for BMDS to explore the trade space of engagement coordination. This will be possible due to the flexibility of the proposed KnoWebr based architecturecoupled with well-calibrated simulations and providing metrics based performance data. The SEC Test Bed will be applicable to the more general study and evaluation of Network Center Warfare (NCW) within the military. Commercial extracts of the capabilitywill be useful in the evaluation of dynamic decision making environments in industry. One such environment is the management of Hedge Funds, which has many characteristics in common with command and control.
