This research addresses needs defined by the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering OUSDR and E, Strategic Technology Protection and Exploitation STPE Division to develop standard approaches to design in security and resilience for current and future weapon systems. The proposal closely aligns with the OUSDR and Es Digital Engineering Strategy DES and the Cyber Resilient Weapon Systems CRWS initiative. It extends ongoing research in Security Engineering within the Systems Engineering Research Center SERC to a broader definition of system assurance. It addresses a gap in current systems engineering methods, processes, and tools MPTs associated with early-phase requirements assessment in Cyber Resilience system trades. Our STPE research sponsors are specifically interested in developing new standard approaches that combine security assurance and safety assurance as well as other assurance concerns in a common, model-based, systems engineering process.
