Abstract
ABSTRACT: The overall purpose of Phase I is to demonstrate the feasibility of our approach by developing a working prototype of the approach. The three main concepts we will demonstrate are 1) a relational data model and database of the diverse information encountered in modeling, simulation and assessment (MS & A)-based SSA; 2) interfacing signature generation and image processing tools to this database, and 3) developing a natural, efficient, visual interface to a relational database, particularly as applied to the AFRL/RVSS usage. BENEFIT: If this approach is successful, we expect to deliver a tool which will greatly enhance the MS & A process in place at the Space Vehicles directorate. In Phase I we will demonstrate the key concepts of a relational database custom engineered to fit the ongoing mission threads, useful analysis tools which interface with this database, and a novel, highly-interactive, and visual method for navigating related data.
