|Summary||The employment of long range fires is a high priority for the U.S. Navy. Long range fires address the capability of U.S. forces to coordinate an emerging arsenal of deep strike weapons against enemy targets that can be launched from an array of joint assets, to include submarines and surface ships, land platforms, and airplanes. This concept means launching ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and hypersonic missiles from multiple, extremely dispersed locations, against critical enemy assets at sea or hardened facilities on land. Additionally, the long range fires process must be resilient in a degraded or denied environment. Coordinating long range fires encompasses a complex set of actions, to include target prioritization and development, command and control, tasking, kinetic and non-kinetic fires, battle damage assessment, rearming and contested logistics. Our approach leverages experience gained by applying systems engineering and analysis to recent research involving the operational Navy, to include projects involving joint fires within Distributed Maritime Operations and the deployment of hypersonic missiles on a current U.S. Navy surface ship. We apply a similar approach here but augment it with a system of systems analysis of applying long range fires in a degraded and denied environment as part of a timely and relevant joint operational scenario. We will examine significant design decisions and operational parameters, as well as appropriate measures of effectiveness, in generating successful long range fires through systems architecture development and simulation analysis.|
