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.
