Mission Engineering: Decision Support and Digital Continuity
As systems become more interconnected in operation and purpose, organizations are utilizing mission engineering as an effective way to perform and collaborate around their evaluation, trade off analysis, and design activities.
The DoD defines mission engineering as an interdisciplinary approach and process encompassing the entire technical effort to analyze, design, and integrate current and emerging operational needs and capabilities to achieve desired mission outcomes.*
In this talk, we will use a search and rescue mission to illustrate how MathWorks tools can support mission engineering workflows. We will demonstrate digital continuity among the different design phases and levels of abstraction to cope with increasing data complexity while enabling collaboration amongst teams and companies. By modeling this systems-of-systems and the respective radar and sensing systems, communication channels, and external environmental factors and entities, we will show how to run mission planning analysis to rapidly define a problem space and evaluate tradeoffs.
· Identify and visualize key performance measures and indicators of mission effectiveness.
· Understand the impact of constraints and assumptions.
· Understand the impact of different sensor and platform requirements on mission success.
· Accelerate the readiness of requirements, platform and sensor models, and testing environment.
