S). The result of this work was "a fully integrated, prototypical, Java-based application that demonstrates how various Open-Source, webbased technologies can be applied in order to provide the tactical operator with tools to aid in Force Protection planning" (Harney 2003). Following Lieutenant Harney, Lieutenant Sullivan added a great deal of functionality to the system by "providing the ability to evaluate security alternatives utilizing models of force protection assets, existing naval facilities, and terrorist agents" in a 3-D virtual environment with data collection for output analysis (Sullivan 2006). My work further expands the simulation's capabilities by adding the functionality to simulate small boat and swarm attacks against underway Arleigh Burke Class Guided Missile Destroyers (DDGs) conducting straits transits using variable, realistic Artificial Intelligence (AI). The additional tools were designed specifically to evaluate current weapons and tactics by collecting data on saturation of crew-served weapons, engagement timelines, and lines of approach. This allows future researchers to evaluate the effectiveness of prototype sensors, weapons, and tactics visually or through output analysis in order to make more informed decisions regarding systems acquisition or doctrinal changes.
