Abstract
To support the Air Force need for a high power microwave (HPM) / high energy laser (HEL) simulation environment, we propose to develop a framework that is based on our existing HPM modeling framework, Mockingbird. Framework development will continue along Mockingbird's original design path, to include support for HPM / HEL system simulation and optimization. The flexible framework will support component models created in a variety of popular simulation applications, by supplying the necessary communication, translation, and synchronization structures required to simulate and optimize a complete system built from those components. Architectural elements to allow distributed computation and communication with other applications throughout the modeling and simulation pyramid will also be examined. All areas of the framework architecture will be developed and specified, including component model interface layers, system simulation and optimization, user interfaces, data display and archival, external application interfaces, and documentation support. A prototype version of Mockingbird will be used to build a system from component models generated by multiple simulation applications. The application's simulation and optimization capabilities will then be applied to that system. Mockingbird prototype software will be delivered to the customer at the conclusion of the Phase I effort.
