MetadataShow full item record
The U.S. Navy is committed to conducting offensive operations via a new warfighting concept known as Distributed Lethality. This research examines the logistical component of Distributed Lethality and provides structure to the concept via the creation of an architectural framework. The methodology for creating this architecture included portions of the traditional systems engineering process along with model based systems engineering (MBSE) and the Department of Defense Architectural Framework (DODAF) v2.0 schema. Requirements are derived from the stakeholder analysis and then connected to the necessary capabilities to fulfill those requirements. From the capabilities, a variety of operational vignettes focused on logistical support, are used to identify the necessary operational architecture to support a distributed force. Finally, the operational architecture is decomposed to the underwriting functions that are connected to components and performers for mission execution. In conclusion, the stakeholder is provided with a fully traceable, flexible, and scalable architecture to aid in codifying the Distributed Lethality concept.
