Abstract

Radiance proposes to develop, upgrade, and enhance the Virtual Combat Laboratory s (VCL) high-fidelity threat models to support the development of network-centric warfare connectivity architectures and technologies for aircraft. In addition, Radiance proposes to upgrade the current network monitoring and recording capabilities of the VCL to allow analysis of sensors, next-generation communication systems, and battlespace management needs. The proposed upgrades will allow the VCL to provide real world network data to any technique development environment. It will also provide a configurable tool capable of monitoring, recording, and analyzing any network message structure. These enhancements will give the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) the capability to characterize and evaluate C4ISR topologies in a real-time virtual battlespace environment, thus saving their customers time and money.
