Research Institution
The ability to model complex systems relevant to EW defeat scenarios, currently requires a knowledgeable user to decompose high-level phenomena into a set of individual phenomena in order to model each phenomenon individually. There are no end-to-end models or systems of models that can appropriately model all aspects of the problem and coherently bring them together into an accurate solution. This results in two key disadvantages: (1) The process of performing multi-step simulations is time consuming (2) The approach requires expertise across several codes The development of a Scenario-Based Electronic Systems Modeling tool will eliminate the need for a knowledgeable user to run each simulation, and will reduce run times and errors. The tool will encapsulate the models of interest in one tool, and automatically decompose electronic system emplacement scenarios into separate problem spaces, recommend to the user which of the available COTS EM models are best suited for the problem, then run and display the results through a user-friendly GUI. This will improve the Army's ability to develop effective defeat solutions in a timelier manner, and can be used by general users for a variety of system and operational level electronics system scenarios.
