Research Institution
The primary objective of the MUOS Modeling and Evaluation Environment (M2E2) tool-kit is to develop the capability that allows for accurate technical and operational insights into end-to-end performance of DoD"s Mobile User Object System (MUOS) and its interoperability with other JTRS networks. M2E2 will support the performance evaluation of MUOS networks as well as performance of supported applications and network services. In this Phase II effort, SNT will develop high fidelity simulation models for MUOS, especially the WCDMA interface between user terminals and the satellites. Software-in-the-loop capability will be provided to interoperate M2E2 with operational applications. This allows for running real MUOS applications, services and network management software on top of simulated MUOS network without requiring any changes to the applications. M2E2 tool-kit will be able to operate in real-time and faster-than-real-time modes with large numbers of simulated MUOS terminals, while rendering detailed behavioral representations of the MUOS and connected JTRS networks. At the end of phase II, we will demonstrate the use of M2E2 tool-kit for an integrated software/human in-the-loop simulation with real video and audio streams transferred in a simulated MUOS network.
