Abstract

To evaluate the BMDS from an engineering and statistical perspective, high-run-count simulations (HRCS) must be performed to more completely sample the scenario space. If HRCS can provide statistically significant results that are validated against higher fidelity simulations, HWIL and live fire test, they can be a very powerful tool in engineering studies, performance estimation and trade studies. SciTec proposes to research, design, develop, test and demonstrate an approach, referred to as Program as Probabilistic Representation Of Operational Functions (PROOF), to achieving a Statistically Significant Simulation of the BMDS over the course of a multi-phase SBIR program. The proposed program includes specification of an approach to represent elements in a probabilistic framework that ties to high fidelity testing and integrate these elements in a step by step manner with the legacy simulation capability.
