Abstract
The mission of the Joint Explosive Ordnance Disposal (JEOD) program is to reduce or eliminate explosive hazards that jeopardize personnel, operations, installations, or materiel. The JEOD program develops equipment in support of this mission. The equipment development begins with identification of a threat. JEOD has a defined process for threat analysis and capability gap assessment but lacks a process for the generation of system requirements for the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS). This thesis studied the shortcomings of the current JEOD requirements generation process and developed a new repeatable threat-based process based on a comprehensive review of systems engineering requirements processes. The new JEOD requirements process incorporates model-based systems engineering (MBSE) to analyze the threat and capability gaps and translate them into quantifiable requirements. The thesis applied this new process using MBSE tools and Monterey Phoenix behavior modeling to the JEOD mission of Rapid Large Area Clearance (RLAC) as a case study to identify common mission scenarios and stakeholder requirements that can be used to develop system requirements. The new process can be used for future JEOD requirements development to reduce the burden on JEOD technicians, shorten the requirements development timeline, and produce more comprehensive and accurate requirements. The new process is extensible to the broader DOD requirements generation community.
