Ballistic Missile Submarine Surface Transit Security Study: Interim Report
Brutzman, Donald P.
MetadataShow full item record
This research models, simulates, visualizes, analyzes, and evaluates security measures for ballistic missile submarine surface transit. The project continues and extends ongoing work that specifically established baseline capabilities for the visualization and security needs for a weapons handling operational area, using a standards-based extensible architecture and conceptual design that can be tailored for a wide variety of naval support activity locations. NPS researchers will perform an independent system of systems (SoS) capability & gap analysis that identify dependencies and potential limitations for the areas of interest. Primary focus is on detailed modeling and evaluation of transits to/from Naval Base Kitsap, building on site visits and work already in progress on waterfront security modeling. Site visits for other strategic ballistic missile submarine ports, in the U.S. and potentially abroad, will ensure that modeling techniques used for analyzing Kitsap transit approaches are directly adaptable to other sites of interest. This work will also consider conducting a crowd-sourcing inquiry among relevant personnel working in SSP commands using the Massive Multiplayer Online Wargame Leveraging the Internet (MMOWGLI) tool.
