Seabasing has been identified as a critical future joint military capability for the United States. The complexity of the Seabasing architecture requires a coordinated development effort to address identified issues and to create a joint Seabasing system-of-systems. New technologies that provide updated capabilities are needed to make the Seabasing concept feasible. It is essential to identify the capabilities required of these new technologies and to quantify the impact of capability tradeoffs on the Seabasing concept. This paper presents a quantitative framework to assess the impacts of new technologies and systems on the overall Seabasing system-of-systems. An architecture-driven approach is employed to develop a discrete event model of the Sea Base-to-Objective system. Surrogate models are constructed to enable rapid, probabilistic design for capability. Compared with previous methods, the proposed approach enables decision makers to make informed decisions during the requirements definition and conceptual phases and offers the potential to reduce the time and cost needed to develop a design that meets or exceeds customer requirements.
