Abstract:

The Kinetic Energy Weapon Digital Emulation Center KDEC located at the U.S. Army Strategic Defense Command in Huntsville, Alabama is an analysis center supporting the evaluation of new and evolving Kinetic Energy Weapon KEW technologies and interceptors. KDEC serves as both an experiment test bed and a data center. As an experiment center KDEC provides the KEW community with an environment conducive to simulation development and test analysis by providing users a simulation framework and validated KEW interceptor models to aid in development and analysis. As a data center KDEC provides a central repository for simulations, emulations, data and other information of interest to the KEW community and the SDIO. This paper presents an overview of the KDEC role as both an SDIO data repository and an experiment test bed.
