Abstract
The United States missile defense capability is expanding rapidly. As the number of interceptors, types, and locations increase to defend against growing threats, so does the complexity of defense. Development of automated allocation of assets to threats is a critical technology to save lives and to efficiently utilize scarce assets (save money) in the event of an actual launch. This automated allocation strategy must account for the many parameters related to threat and response. Threat parameters include launch location, warheads, range, reliability, and target point. Response parameters include platform, intercept location, time-windows, interceptor types, and probability of kill. The ultimate operational success of any solution requires a quality automated allocation with user acceptance and confidence. Sonalysts will develop the necessary algorithms and visualization techniques for this complex problem. This development will be based on a resource allocation strategy to develop a Multi-Layer Asset Allocation algorithm for engaging multiple threats from varied interceptors. The proposal outlines the mathematical/computational basis as well the user interface design approach for managing the developed algorithmic solution. Sonalysts has considerable knowledge and research success in missile defense, combat systems, and human systems integration to apply towards development of the technologies for this complex problem.
