Abstract:

The JNTF has defined a cost effective, tailorable, and scalable VV methodology which this past year was effectively used on the first release of a missile defense system simulation. We will present the lessons learned from applying the methodology on the National Missile Defense NMD High Fidelity System Simulation HFSS. This effort was presented with numerous technical and programmatic challenges, and the adaptability of the JNTF VV Methodology contributed to the success of the effort. The HFSS is a missile defense simulation that covers all aspects of performance modeling from threat launch, space based tracking, ground radar tracking, baffle planning, and interceptor launch. It is intended to support system engineering studies and analyses while the system is in the early requirements definition and system design phases.
