Test and Evaluation of the Ballistic Missile Defense System: FY03 Progress Report [open pdf - 775KB]
This report summarizes the work done in FY03 to develop a systematic engineering-based approach for constructing a high-level architecture for a Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). The authors developed six UML use cases to identify the external agents and systems that are involved in a typical missile-defense scenario. Based on these use cases, they developed the top level of a distributed architecture of a BMDS and conducted simulation studies to analyze the network requirements to support such architecture. They also developed a physical model to analyze the sensor requirements to successfully detect and track a ballistic missile throughout the boost phase.
