Multi-Temporal Analysis of Underbody IED Theater Events on Ground Vehicles

Recently, modeling and simulation (M&S) engineers have made impressive strides in improving ground vehicle reliability and soldier safety. This work involved live-fire testing and evaluation (LFT&E) of the effects of underbody improvised explosive device (IED) blasts on moving ground vehicles. A multi-fidelity, multi-temporal M&S methodology was developed and successfully applied to the reconstruction of theater IED events.

Simulation Tools Prevent Signal Interference on Spacecraft

NASA Technology

Launching a satellite into space requires painstaking preparation, not only to make sure that a multitude of technologies are functioning, but also to ensure that critical components are working together in unison. A great example: the communication systems onboard satellites and the rockets used to launch them.

Partnership with NASA and BDS

BDS has the responsibility of managing decades of data utilized to control and plan launches and then design Low Earth Orbit protocols to keep thousands of communication satellites in sync with control centers.

SpaceX

SpaceX has gained worldwide attention for a series of historic milestones. It is the only private company capable of returning a spacecraft from low Earth orbit, which it first accomplished in 2010. The company made history again in 2012 when its Dragon spacecraft became the first commercial spacecraft to deliver cargo to and from the International Space Station.

SpaceX successfully achieved the historic first reflight of an orbital class rocket in 2017, and the company now regularly launches flight-proven rockets. In 2018, SpaceX began launching Falcon Heavy, the world’s most powerful operational rocket by a factor of two.

Aerodynamic Modeling of a Flapping Wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

The phenomenon of flapping-wing flight in nature has been studied for centuries. Recently, flapping flight for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) applications has become of interest. Flapping wing flight offers many potential advantages over traditional fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. Fixed-wing UAVs have the advantages of long-range and endurance, and high payload capabilities; however, they require high forward flight speeds and most configurations cannot hover, which makes them difficult to control in confined spaces.

Queuing Model for Supervisory Control of Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles

One critical aspect in developing a quantitative model of unmanned autonomous vehicle (UAV) operator and system performance has been to adopt a task-centric approach to interface design that entails an explicit representation of actions or tasks that need to be performed by the operator. The representation of work in terms of a task serves as a trace in the system that enables designers to track workload in addition to the task progress and flow of tasks among team members. In supervisory control, the focus is the flow of tasks (work) through a system that is composed of human servers and automated servers (software agents).

Real-Time, High-Fidelity Simulation of Autonomous Ground Vehicle Dynamics

Integrated simulation capabilities that are high-fidelity, fast, and have scalable architecture are essential to support autonomous vehicle design and performance assessment for the Army’s growing use of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs). A mobility simulation of an autonomous vehicle in an off-road scenario was developed using an integrated sensor, controller, and multibody dynamics models.

Ground to Air Defense

The Department of Defense’s enduring mission is to provide combat-credible military forces needed

to deter war and protect the security of our nation. Should deterrence fail, the Joint Force is prepared

to win. Reinforcing America’s traditional tools of diplomacy, the Department provides military

options to ensure the President and our diplomats negotiate from a position of strength.

Today, we are emerging from a period of strategic atrophy, aware that our competitive military

advantage has been eroding. We are facing increased global disorder, characterized by decline in the

long-standing rules-based international order—creating a security environment more complex and

volatile than any we have experienced in recent memory. Inter-state strategic competition, not

terrorism, is now the primary concern in U.S. national security.

This increasingly complex security environment is defined by rapid technological change, challenges

from adversaries in every operating domain, and the impact on current readiness from the longest

continuous stretch of armed conflict in our Nation’s history. In this environment, there can be no

complacency—we must make difficult choices and prioritize what is most important to field a lethal,

resilient, and rapidly adapting Joint Force. America’s military has no preordained right to victory on

the battlefield.

This unclassified synopsis of the classified 2018 National Defense Strategy articulates our strategy to

compete, deter, and win in this environment. The reemergence of long-term strategic competition,

rapid dispersion of technologies, and new concepts of warfare and competition that span the entire

spectrum of conflict require a Joint Force structured to match this reality. 

Partners with Lockheed Martin

The F-22 Raptor is considered the first 5th-generation fighter in the U.S. Air Force inventory, using low observable technologies, modern avionics, and efficient engines to offer an air superiority fighter unmatched by any other modern military.

The F-22 Raptor, a critical component of the Global Strike Task Force, is designed to project air dominance, rapidly and at great distances and defeat threats attempting to deny access to our nation's Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps. The F-22 cannot be matched by any known or projected fighter aircraft.
