Abstract
In this project Wagner Associates will develop an accurate, fast, easy to use, modular, and Open Architecture Engagement Level Air Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Tool (ELAST) that will accomplish the key goals of this R&D project: I. Accurately quantify the operational effectiveness of friendly Air Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) assets in few-on-few engagements against threat submarines. II. Run quickly enough to permit the analysis of many scenarios of potential interest. III. Provide an intuitive interface that is easily operated by analysts inexperienced in using the tool, but also allows experienced operations to analyze virtually any desired scenario. IV. Automatically generate quantitative and operationally relevant Measures of Performance (MOPs) in presentation ready format. V. Use a highly modular, object oriented, Open Architecture approach that allows most simulation tool modifications to be made without modifying software, e.g., modifying sensor performance parameters or adding new sensors by changing only configuration files. This approach will greatly simplify the process of enhancing ELAST software modules in the future, and permit the use of modules developed by NAVAIR or other contractors within ELAST.
