Abstract:

The Space Based Infra Red System Wargaming Model SBIRSWM is a simulation representing the future SBIRS capabilities for the Space and Missile Systems Center SBIRS Program Office, Advanced Program Division SMCMTEP in wargames and exercises. SBIRSWM is required to run in real-time utilizing various interfaces and protocols, and can be used to perform design trades, refining requirements, and providing an independent tool for verification of system operational utility and effectiveness. SBIRSWM is based on current operational requirements, and currently represents SBIRS in Joint National Test Facility JNTF wargames, other system-of-system simulations, and exercises. The simulation represents Low Earth Orbit LEO, Geostationary Earth Orbit GEO, and Highly Elliptical Orbit HEO elements of the program. The JNTF has teamed with SMC, the SBIRS Contractor, and the Software Engineering Institute to evolve SBIRSWM to meet current and future needs, and to evaluate Product Line Architecture PLA applicability to conducting business. The initial product will be called the Missile Defense Space Tool MDST, and will initially be used to support Expeditionary Forces Experiment 1998. This paper describes the SBIRS system and concepts, and then describes how the JNTF and SMC will bring that concept to the warfighter in the form of a flexible and realistic simulation tool.
