Abstract
"Phase I efforts will research requirements for a low-fidelity simulation that address a layered Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) for all phases of missile flight and all ranges. Phase I also will demonstrate a Missile Defense Concept Analysis Tool(MiDCAT) concept for new and evolving BMD systems (GMD, MEADS, THADD, Navy TWD, TBMD, etc.) and Ballistic Missile Command, Control, and Communications (BM/C3). This demonstration will be accomplished through development of a BMD scenario and modificationof the Jane's Fleet CommandO military simulation/gaming engine.Research efforts also will address scenario generation, automated data collection, and assessment capabilities to support cost-effective 'first order' analysis at the Joint National Integration Center (JNIC) and Joint Forces Command (JFCOM) JointExperimentation. These capabilities seek cost reductions for conducting full-blown BMD simulations or tests.Phase II efforts will develop a MiDCAT prototype system of a Battle Management Center, as well as, demonstration and evaluation at the JNIC. This research will contribute significantly to the development of a fully functional concept development testing system that will support a BMD command environment on a PC-based system. This technology represents a cost reduction approach to concepttesting. We anticipate that the technology developed under this SBIR topic will be employed in future Military programs (ABL, SBIRS, DD(X)
