This research uses Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) to examine the need for rapid expeditionary reach, where Marine Expeditionary Forces (MEF) must be rapidly transported to various global regions to provide support for the spectrum of missions from major combat operations to humanitarian aid/disaster relief (HADR). Our focus will be to examine a range of options to efficiently (measured in fuel requirements) address this need, to include commercial vessels and prepositioning of vessels and equipment. We will then use the results as inputs to a dynamic ..Dashboard" display. This allows senior decision makers the opportunity to explore the tradespace that links various options regarding expeditionary reach with energy efficiency.
There are four primary parts of the study for FY 15:
- Use team of 5 SE students in their capstone design project to examine expeditionary reach options compared to energy efficiency. Develop systems architecture, appropriate metrics, relevant operational scenario (with sponsor input), and simulation.
- Use OR thesis student to conduct more in depth analytical study leveraging work done by SE capstone team.
- Use doctoral student to develop a dynamic dashboard to better communicate design trades, based on models generated from student capstone project.
- Use additional doctoral student to apply MBSE methodology in addressing need for improved MOEs in the assessment of operational security as a "proof of principle" for his dissertation.
