Abstract:

This paper discusses modeling and simulation methods employed to support the Conventional Counter-Force missions CCF and Passive Defense missions during the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe SHAPE sponsored exercise Clean Hunter 18-29 June 2001, at the AIRNORTH Command Center located at Ruppertsweiler, Germany. NC3A and member nations of the Coalition Aerial Surveillance and Reconnaissance CAESAR project contributed simulated ground vehicle movements including Transporter-Erector-Launcher TEL battery and infrastructure, interoperable Airborne Ground Surveillance AGS platform and sensor simulations, and exploitation workstations in support of the Theatre Missile Defense portion of the exercise. During this exercise, CAESAR data from seven simulated Moving Target Indicator MTI and Synthetic Aperture Radar SAR sensors, developed at a single site, was disseminated to Combined Air Operation Centers CAOC in Germany and the UK and to the Center de Coordination des Operations Aeriennes CCOA in France. This paper discusses the nature of the simulation environment supplied by NC3A for exercise Clean Hunter 2001 including the scenario generation, sensor system models and the communications required to link sites in five nations. Discussion will also include future plans for CAESAR simulation work including distributed experiments using the Combined Federated Battle Lab Network CFBLNet, advanced scenario generation using semi-automated forces SAF technology and High Level Architecture HLA.
