AbstractAccelerated development of directed energy technologies has presented new problems to mission planners and weapon operators regarding the capabilities, lethality and performance of weapon systems. The Emerging Weapons Technology Evaluation Model willaddress these shortcomings by providing users of varying technical expertise 1) the ability to model a variety of weapons in various mission scenarios and determine their effects on targets, and 2) the ability to specify the damage on targets and determinewhich weapon systems are capable. The flexibility of this modeling software allows for future growth as new weapons, targets, and platforms are introduced. Expert guidance will be built into the software and intuitive analysis tools available to assistanalyses. Applied Sciences Laboratory, Inc. (ASL) has developed a software architecture for the modeling and analysis of specific types of directed energy systems that can be rapidly modified to meet the USSOCOM requirements. This architecture is modularand easily adaptable to accommodate growth for future requirements. Its structure has been optimized through years of development and use and has proven to adapt to a variety of directed energy modeling uses. Leveraging this existing architecture, ASL canquickly create a powerful modeling tool avoiding the risk and cost of new development.
