Ottawa, Canada, July 11-14, 2010


Summary

The purpose of this study is to define capabilities for a suite of simulations that are suitable for modeling a Sea Base Enabler (SBE). The SBE concept is becoming increasingly important to naval operations for sustaining sea power and defining the capabilities of a SBE is a significant undertaking that is being developed by both academia and industry, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR). Three capabilities that are being defined in this research for evaluating M&S are usability, flexibility, and scalability. M&S tools are well suited for modeling and simulating SBE’s to provide insight into new Innovative Naval Prototypes like the Transformation Craft (T-craft). The two possible categories of simulation that could be used to model a SBE scenario are next-event, time-step, and autonomous agent based modeling. This research attempts to provide decision makers with adequate information to apply throughout the life cycle of the SBE development.
