Phase B

Preliminary Design

Air and missile defense (AMD) systems’ preliminary design requires a complex and interactive set of design, modeling, and simulation processes and toolboxes that capture functional, performance, and interface requirements [1–7,21–23]. The Battlespace Engineering Assessment Tool (BEAT) was developed by the authors to conduct (1) sophisticated ship combat systems engineering preliminary design; (2) requirements trade studies; and (3) war-fighting performance analysis. An analysis of BEAT will enable a complete discussion of the AMD preliminary design process. For example, BEAT was initially used for both cruise and ballistic missile defense applications. Specifically, BEAT was used to quantify battlespace performance ...
