Abstract:

The purpose of the Zen Regard Experiment was to develop and demonstrate the key technologies necessary to support worldwide command and control, surveillance, targeting, attack and bomb damage assessment for future warfighting in the Distributed Interactive Simulation DIS Network arena. The Zen Regard Experiment was conducted over approximately 13 locations throughout the United States. The Mounted Warfare Testbed MWTB and the Aviation Testbed AVTB were the two locations controlled by the Loral ADST Program Office. War Breaker develops and demonstrates capabilities enabling and integrated, end-to-end system that detects, identifies, targets, and neutralizes time-critical targets. The War Breaker program focuses on key on-going ARPA technology developments, augmented with new high leverage Service initiatives and closely coupled with the Precision Strike, Global Surveillance, and Communication Science and Technology thrusts. Although War Breaker is aimed at killing theater ballistic missiles, the enabling technologies are directly applicable to other time-critical targets. ARPA is striving for a fully integrated warfighting system, with system engineering supported by the Distributed Defense Simulation wargaming environment. The distributed Defense Simulation wargaming environment combines simulations and simulators capabilities from all branches of the Armed Forces offering the capability of visualizing and communicating system performance, requirements, and man-in-the-loop interactions in an operational context.
