|Summary||This project assesses the operational and design considerations for utilization of an unmanned carrier concept in support of Distributed Maritime Operations (DMO). That assessment will inform investment and development of operational concepts related to the utilization of unmanned systems and their integration with the manned fleet. This project develops architectural representations of DMO, to include definition of associated systems as well as related operational activities. Those representations serve as the baseline for simulation model development that examines the impact that the unmanned carrier system may have on lethality, risk reduction, operational availability, and sustainment. Analysis of that model will identify the characteristics of the unmanned carrier system and associated unmanned systems that have the largest impact on operational effectiveness and identify potential conflicts between operational activities and system design decisions.|
