AbstractThe objective of this research is to determine the feasibility of using advanced Petri iiet technology to analyze the performance of large-scale sensor and C3 (i.e., C3I) systems. The US Navy is developing future C3I systems to support its mission and fundamental warfare tasks. The decision of which C3I systems to fund and field and how to integrate them into a given platform must be based on the contribution of the C3I system to overall system effectiveness. ALPHATECH has developed an interactive, graphical sLmulation tool called Modeler, specifically for quantitative C3I system performance evaluations. Modeler uses advanced Petri nets models of sensors, corn munications, and concepts of operation to relate low-level technical parameters to overall mission effectiveness. ALPHATECH has extended this tool to interact with external signal processing and data fusion algorithms, and used it to assess the performance of alternative designs and technologies for certain air defense systems. ALPAHTECH proposes to use Modeler to provide quantitative evaluation of a specific mobile surveillance system (MSS), Combat DP. In Phase I, we will model, sLmulate, and analyze the performance of Combat DP at a level of detail sufficient to produce output representative of Combat DP. In Phase II, we will develop a robust, full- scale model of Combat DP.
