Ship performance characteristics, such as max-sustained speed, acceleration, and maneuverability are generally pre-determined as a platform requirement based on precedents. However, these pre-determined performance characteristics have far reaching impacts on the size, logistics, manning, and cost of the ship platform. Instead of designing to pre-defined platform performance requirements, ship performance characteristics should be determined based on fulfilling mission objectives. This research evaluates the viability to effectively determine if the ship characteristic requirements can be quantified by using Naval Sea Systems Command?s Naval Battle Engagement Model (NABEM)?an agent-based simulation tool developed by Naval Sea Systems Command. In particular, we study two tactical situations by varying three platform characteristics?maximum speed, acceleration, and turning diameter?and determine how these platform characteristics affect mission performance.
