Research Institution
TechFlow Scientific proposes to develop a dynamic high-power radio-frequency (HPRF) engagement modeling and simulation (M & S) tool for predicting weapon effectiveness in Navy surface engagements, leveraging past related work to advance the development schedule. Our team brings considerable experience in HPRF M & S and analysis, software development, and integration of individual tools to create comprehensive engagement-level tools. We understand HPRF systems, and have developed software tools with intuitive graphical user interfaces (GUIs), including the Joint RF Effectiveness Model (JREM) and the high power microwave (HPM) Test Hazard Prediction (THP) tool, which are comparable in architecture and interface to the desired solution for this effort. The THP tool provides a graphical interface for scenario building, and supports sea surface and littoral scenarios. In both JREM and THP, tight integration with the simulation allows display of output plots directly in the scenario visualization windows. Our team also has experience in agent-based modeling, enabling us to integrate a representation of target vessel behavior for realistic engagement modeling. Our experience puts our team in an optimal position to develop this tool to meet the needs of Navy personnel responsible for the evaluation of HPRF weapon effectiveness, and/or development of optimal concepts of employment of weapon systems.
