The desire of modem military and political leaders to conduct accurate and effective strike missions on enemy military targets using limited resources, with a minimal risk to U.S. resources and personnel, in a timely manner is in direct competition with an adversary's goal of defending his territory and assets. An adversary can threaten, deter or even destroy strike assets used to attack him using IADS, aircraft and other means. New technologies may enable the United States to strike potential opponents in a timely fashion. The Space Operations Vehicle (SOV) is a low earth orbit capable space vehicle being developed by Phillips Laboratories at Kirtland AFB, New Mexico. The SOV will be a cross between the space shuttle and an F-14 fighter, a rugged low earth orbit capable vehicle designed to conduct multiple sorties for military purposes. This thesis develops a software component architecture and component library for building simulations for analysis of current and proposed military systems such as the SOV. This software package will support the Simulation Based Acquisition (SBA) process through all the phases and milestones of a program and help ensure the United States obtains the best equipment to maintain its edge on the battlefield.
