Title: SMDC OneSAF Co-Development Lab (OCDL) Status Briefing

SMDC OneSAF Co-Development Lab (OCDL) Status
Presented to OneSAF Users Conference March-Apr
il 2009
  • Presented by
  • Joseph Kress
  • OCDL Program Manager
  • COLSA Corporation

The Huntsville OneSAF Co-Development Lab
OCDL Mission Provide SMDC an in-house integrated
and demonstrable MS capability in support of new
acquisitions for the Warfighter with emphasis on
Space and other electronic based systems . . .
. . . Providing the Warfighter a realistic
testing and Modeling/Simulation environment,
analysis toolset, for space and other systems
Co-Development Lab Milestones
  • MayISR development began. Initiated development
    of a Satellite Imagery Capability.
  • October ISR Handover Package (Source Code,
    Development Artifacts, Test Plans, Procedures,
    Test Results). Integrated ISR into OneSAF
    baseline. Added eleven commercial satellites with
    EO sensor capability and a high-efficiency LEO
    mobility model (GRoSP algorithm) for computation
    of the satellite orbits.
  • DecemberInternal Federation Demonstration with
    OneSAF, Space Server, and CES. Verified component
    and federation connection thru RTI.
  • FebruarySpace-Based SATCOM/TACSAT 3 Handover.
    Functionality included HSI Sensor
    Representation Enhanced Target Detection
    TACSAT3 representation SATCOM Constellations
    SATCOM Networks and SATCOM Message Distribution.
  • MarchEW Research Project Kickoff.
  • Sept-OctHA Project Kickoff.
  • NovEW Comms/GPS Jammer Models Handover.

  • February2nd ISR Handover integrated into OneSAF
    Version 1.0 providing Mobile Ground Station (MGS)
    capability with communications links between a
    satellite and ground C2 networks. MGS
    improvements included an imagery analyst
    representation explicit mobility
    communications and a user-modifiable time delay
    exploitation process.
  • March Federation Materials/Project completed.
  • July 3rd ISR Handover included Infrared Target
    Acquisition Model Multiple Sensor Payload
    Collection Planner MEO Satellites movement
    Algorithm and GEO Satellite Movement Algorithm.
    A multiple sensor capability, allowed satellites
    to have a two-sensor payload, EO and IR.
  • JulyJBFSA Handover included GPS Orbit
    Initialization Data GPS DoP Algorithm BFT Radio
    DoP Algorithm and MEO/GEO AoI Access
    Determination Algorithms for a JBFSA MMC Entity.
  • AprilOCDL concept explored based on FACT
  • AugustODCL initiated IDE Servers Arrive and
    User/IDE/Training conducted.
  • SeptemberOneSAF JBFSA Research Project Kickoff.
  • OctoberOneSAF Research Project Kickoff. Joint
    Federation program. Provides an environment to
    examine Space Effects on a Communications
  • DecemberDedication of COLSA OCDL Established to
    facilitate Space Modeling and Simulation
    Development efforts. Introduced the capability to

Potential FY09 Projects
Electronic Warfare
SMDC Support
  • Handover corrections support
  • Enhance GPS Jammer Model
  • Enhance Communications Jammer Model
  • HPC investigation (federate w/ higher fidelity
  • Investigate Software Defined Radio (SDR) usage
    with OneSAF as a Virtual-constructive step to
    live jammers
  • Build initial Live Jammer interface to OneSAF
  • General enhancements
  • Jammer Fan
  • Direction Finding capability
  • Long Term EW into OneSAF Plan
  • Better 3D Viewer for test analysis,
    demonstrations, After Action reports
  • Complete Generic HAA Model and build Handover
    materials package
  • Populate HAA generic model with actual HAA
    parameters and conduct/support SMDC performance
    and stress testing
  • Design and build a series of viable scenarios
    that leverage Space-based assets (varying size
    and complexity)
  • Assist SMDC in the parameter population and
    creation of secret satellites and sensors
  • Expand the GPS capability to additional entity
    types (other radios, JDAMS, etc.)
  • Build a Program Plan that will strategize the
    movement of high priority FACT issues/requirements
    into development and implementation into OneSAF
  • Build Space related training and support package
    for potential Space-OneSAF Users
  • HEO Orbit model

Recent EW Research Activities
  • Researched Areas
  • Communication Jamming
  • GPS Jamming
  • Direction Finding
  • CES (Qualnet)
  • OneSAF Jamming Infrastructure (1.5, 2.0)
  • Research Findings
  • Low Fidelity Jamming Infrastructure exists in
  • Simple degraded comms jamming
  • Emitter Beam Manager
  • CES integrated with OF (FCS) OneSAF
  • MATREX support exists in OneSAF
  • Communication Jamming 1) Perfect Comms 2)
    Degraded Comms simple propagation with jamming
    3)TIREM complex propagation with no jamming
  • GPS - No GPS jamming capability
  • Activate Emitter - Behavior supports single
    frequency, on/off cycle and mission duration

Communication Jammer Design
  • Communication Jamming Effects
  • Create two Communication Models
  • Model Based on TIREM model
  • Reuse TIREM message propagation for both J and S
    in J/S ratio calculation
  • Complex calculations
  • Model based on Degraded Comm model
  • Uses simple path loss, power, frequency checks
  • Less calculations than TIREM but more capable
    than existing OneSAF models
  • Transmitter and receiver omni-directional
    antenna (azimuth 360)
  • Jammer may have directional antenna
  • Adjust jammer antenna gain due to directional
  • Add barrage and sweep jamming modes
  • Add generic jammer entities and units for testing

Designed Propagation Path
Jamming Propagation Path
GPS Jammer Model Design
  • GPS Jamming Effects
  • Implement a proof of concept use for demos etc
    to work out additional requirements
  • GPS receiver and jammer have omni directional
  • Attributes frequency, simple LOS, range
  • Build framework for follow on GPS jamming
  • Implicit GPS signals
  • C/A Signal Jamming only
  • GPS Signals have constant strength at ground (No
    path loss)
