Abstract : This thesis analyzes the vessels potential contribution to distributed lethality as a surface warfare (SuW) platform. The author first attempts to establish traceability, requirements and capabilities while determining the architecture framework in accordance with the Department of Defense Architectural Framework (DODAF). Then, using an experimental approach with a basic operational analysis, this thesis demonstrates, through the use of model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and simulation tools, the effectiveness of an anti-surface warfare (ASUW) version of the Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) in supporting distributed lethality. Analysis is built on ACTUV simulation data already available as well as results from the authors simulations.
