Numerica proposes an evaluation tool that can assess early-development radar technology concepts, using consistent metrics, so that promising investments can be quickly differentiated from less useful options. In this program Numerica will develop and deliver a BMD radar representative test environment for use in a variety of programs. The tool will provide an open architecture, modular operating framework. The software will be unclassified (but representative), distributable, and will provide a variety of warfighter-relevant performance metrics. This environment was developed to serve as our Track Management Development Environment for air and missile defense programs. Numerica?s solution already supports an open architecture, has a sophisticated electronically scanned array radar model, and supports web-based visualization and metrics tools for analysis of radar simulation results. In this program, Numerica will adapt the components to meet the specific requirements of the solicitation. Approved for Public Release 14-MDA-8047 (14 Nov 14)
