Asymmetric attacks, natural & man-made disasters and humanitarian assistance operations require new capabilities for Defense and Security forces as well as first responders and others who maintain our Critical National Infrastructure. Furthermore, they require the ability to test, extend and challenge existing doctrines & standard operating procedures that are followed in such emergency situations. Whilst each stakeholder has limited tools to look at their own doctrines in isolation, there is no inter-agency validation testbed for working on the increasing complexity of multi-agent activities, nor a sufficient training environment.
A research and development plan is proposed for this CRADA that would lead to the development of a software framework and visualization platform for doctrine validation and training. The resulting solution will address critical military and civilian needs in managing responses and validating existing or proposed Standard Operating Procedures as well as enabling the de-risking or validation of capability insertion. This solution would be used in conjunction with defined scenarios - described by use-cases, of natural and man made disasters, as well as issues regarding asymmetric attack that can be provided in an open, modular & extensible environment.
At the conclusion of the planned research and development program, we will have defined and built an architectural framework, use-case library and further developed the existing MOVES (Modeling, Virtual Environments and Simulation) serious-gaming engine to validate the systems concept and underlying interoperability of the simulation models. Additionally, a joint team from MOVES & EADS-NA will demonstrate an operational prototype at DARPATech in August 2010.
