Abstract
OptTek proposes to create a new methodology and tool set,"OptDef & #61652;,"to provide MDA a capability to optimize Ballistic Missile Defense systemsa capability that will enable MDA to answer credibly not only"what if?", but also"what's best?"and"why this and not that?"OptDef will build on proven OptTek-proprietary technologies in simulation optimization that will leverage MDA's investment in such credible and accredited BMDS-level performance tools as SABER, CAPS, I-SIM, DE Sim and LIDS. OptDef will significantly increase the effective utility of BMDS simulation models allowing analysts to optimize more than 10,000 continuous and/or discrete system decision variables. OptDef's technology will seamlessly integrate with MDA simulation systems without modifying or affecting the simulation systems in any way. Toward fulfillment of this SBIR's long-term objective, the technical objectives for this proposal fall into three categories Software Integration, Optimization Technology, and System Analyses. The Software Integration component will address the mechanics of coupling OptDef with DSA and other systems of simulations. The Optimization Technology objectives will focus on development of specific algorithms and techniques to enhance the utility of OptDef for MDA applications. Finally, the System Analyses component of this project will provide analysis support for the war-fighter using OptDef.
