A Systems Design Approach to Define the Requirements and Concept of Operations for Offensive and Defensive Seabed Warfare
MetadataShow full item record
Project Summary: This research defines and analyzes a concept of operations for seabed warfare. The research develops a broad definition of seabed warfare as a distinct warfare area via development of a systems architecture. Particular focus is given to the sensing, charging, and weapon characteristics relevant to seabed warfare. The research presents an initial set of system requirements for the employment of a “kill box” concept for seabed warfare as well as a definition of system functional and relevant physical components. The research develops an operational simulation in Matlab, directly linked to both the functional and physical system architecture products, that analyzes the performance parameters that have the largest impact on operational effectiveness. In particular, the research examines the operational impact of candidate unmanned undersea vehicles as enablers to the seabed warfare concept. That analysis is fed back into the system architecture to develop recommended system configurations and inform initial system requirements.
