  • Review of SBA Architecture Concepts
  • JSF Collaborative Environment Concepts
  • The JSF Strike Warfare Collaborative Environment
  • The JSF Resource Access System (RAS)
  • The JSF SWCE Management Process
  • Summary

Joint Strike Fighter Background
  • The JSF program is the U.S. DoDs focal point for
    defining an affordable next-generation strike
    aircraft weapon system for the Navy, Air Force,
    Marines, and U.S. Allies
  • An early commitment was made in the JSF program
    to modeling and simulation to provide a solid
    analytic foundation for evolving requirements,
    reducing costs, and performing tradeoff analyses
  • The Virtual Strike Warfare Environment (VSWE),
    begun in 1994, has provided the virtual component
    of the JSF MS architecture during the Program
    Definition and Risk Reduction (PDRR) phase
  • Seven VSWE experiments have been conducted since
    May 1998, culminating in VSWE 7 in the summer of
  • The JSF program has developed, and is evolving, a
    Modeling and Simulation Support Plan (MSSP) for
    the Engineering and Manufacturing Development
    (EMD) phase

Simulation Based AcquisitionVision Statement and
  • Vision An Acquisition Process in Which DoD and
    Industry Are Enabled by Robust, Collaborative Use
    of Simulation Technology That Is Integrated
    Across Acquisition Phases and Programs.
  • Goals The Goals of Simulation Based Acquisition
    (SBA) Are to
  • Substantially Reduce the Time, Resources, and
    Risk Associated With the Entire Acquisition
  • Increase the Quality, Military Worth and
    Supportability of Fielded Systems, While Reducing
    Total Ownership Costs Throughout the Total Life
  • Enable Integrated Product and Process Development
    (IPPD) Across the Entire Acquisition Life Cycle.

Source Acquisition Council of the DoD Executive
Council for Modeling and Simulation (approved 5
Dec 1997). The vision was also re-approved as a
concise definition of SBA by the Acquisition
Council on 21 Aug 2000.
Key SBA Architecture Constructsfrom the SBA
  • Collaborative Environments (CEs)
  • Within the context of SBA, a collaborative
    environment (CE) is an enduring collection of
    subject matter experts (SMEs) supported by
    interoperable tools and data bases, authoritative
    information resources, and product/process models
    that are focused on a common domain or set of
  • The Collaborative Environment Reference Systems
    Architecture (CERSA)
  • Distributed Product Descriptions (DPDs)
  • A Distributed Product Description (DPD) is a
    distributed collection of product-centric
    information that is interconnected via web
    technology into what appears (to the user) to be
    a single, logically unified product
  • The DoD/Industry Resource Repository (DIRR)
  • Data Interchange Formats (DIFs)

Essential Elements of aCollaborative Environment
  • A defined purpose for which the CE is intended to
    be used
  • The involvement of subject matter experts (SMEs)
    from all functional disciplines that are
    stakeholders in the domain or set of problems
    upon which the CE is focused
  • Availability of a set of interoperable models,
    simulations, tools, and data appropriate to the
    domain or problem set
  • Systems to enable electronic collaboration over a
    distance for exchange of information, access to
    authoritative data, and execution of simulations
  • A systems architecture framework for the CE,
    derived from a common reference, such as the
  • An agreed upon set of standards, rules, and local
    conventions, to which all CE users and components
  • An agreed upon set of processes for configuration
    management and for Verification, Validation, and
    Accreditation (VVA)
  • Coordinated policy, planning, and investment
    strategies to ensure continuing support of the CE

  • Evaluation of effectiveness of JSF to perform its
    total set of missions
  • Includes performance-oriented simulations
    primarily at the mission level, but also at the
    campaign and engagement levels
  • Supportability Analysis
  • Supportability requirements and capabilities
    throughout the life cycle
  • Cost Analysis
  • Determining total ownership cost (TOC)
  • Engineering and Manufacturing Analysis
  • Engineering and manufacturing by the Weapon
    System Contractor
  • Includes requirements management and traceability
  • Direct linkage to design and development tools,
    data products, and analysis of engineering and
    manufacturing processes

Focus Areas of JSFCollaborative Environments
The JSF Strike Warfare Collaborative Environment
(SWCE) is defined to be that Government-managed
CE that is used to support the collaboration
focus areas of mission effectiveness analysis,
supportability analysis, cost analysis, and
engineering and manufacturing analysis.

The JSF SWCE ManagementProcess
The JSF Modeling and Simulation Support Plan
(MSSP) addresses the following MS management
functions conducted by or for the JSF Program
  • Configuration Management of the JSF MS Toolset
  • Evolve tools and databases to support Government
    and Weapon System Contractor needs
  • Manage code and data distribution to JSF users
  • Control configuration of the SWCE MS Toolset
    through semi-annual Configuration Control Boards
  • JSF Data/Model Improvement Program
  • Upgrades and updates to Government-owned models
    and databases
  • JSFPO does not own any individual models
    supplies funding and requirements to model owners
  • Verification, Validation, and Accreditation
  • JSF process based on DMSO Recommended Practices
  • Verification Validation (VV) normally done by
    model owner/manager
  • Accreditation is the JSFPOs responsibility
    tailored approach developed by Joint
    Accreditation Support Activity (JASA)

  • The Joint Strike Fighter program intends to
    enhance its ability to represent the JSF in
    realistic synthetic environments during EMD
