Abstract
The Office of Naval Research has established a need for improved design and analysis methods for the next generation of naval surface combatants. The Aerospace Systems Design Lab (ASDL) has initiated the Integrated Reconfigurable Intelligent Systems project to address design issues associated with the future systems. A goal of this program is to define preliminary approaches for developing an integrated modeling and simulation environment for complex systems. Since such systems are heterogeneous, dynamical and interdependent we suggest that a system-of-systems multidisciplinary approach is most appropriate for investigating and executing solutions. An integration methodology employing innovative techniques and a framework of tools that can be used to couple disparate models and simulations is presented. Methods for validating the final product to justify the selected approach and demonstrate a proof of concept for the integrated model are also discussed.
