Pirate Mother Ship Warning and Reporting System (PMSWRS)
MetadataShow full item record
The Pirate Mother Ship Warning and Reporting System (PMSW&RS) analysis identifies a suitable and effective combination of unmanned aerial systems land launched from regional main operating bases (MOB) or commercial airfields to provide persistent intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and tracking of Pirate Mother Ships that are prowling the shipping lanes for commercial vessels transiting across the Horn of Africa (HOA). The team developed a systems concept, the context, and a requirements hierarchy to support mission objectives. Architectural baselines were developed to identify key design characteristics and to provide insight into the value system design, analysis, modeling, and research efforts. System modeling using IBM Rational Rhapsody toolset, OMOE analysis, and CAIV analysis confirm that the highest value solution uses the LEMV.
