Abstract : This research task (RT-168) is addressing research needs defined by the United States (US) Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) in Picatinny, NJ. The purpose of this RT-168 Phase I final technical report is to document the refinement and expansion of those needs and the status of working sessions, demonstrations, presentations, and reports provided to the ARDEC team. These needs are characterized as overarching objectives and goals to elicit requirements for the Armament Virtual Collaboratory Environment (AVCE) integrated Model Based Environment (iMBE). The AVCE iMBE is ARDECs envisioned concept of an integrated modeling environment - the system for designing future ARDEC systems or systems-of-systems. The intent is to understand the relationships between Systems Engineering (SE) activities and methods in the context of a Digital Thread concept developed by ARDEC.
