1 SMDC OneSAF Co-Development Lab (OCDL) Status Briefing Presented to:OneSAF User’s ConferenceMarch-April 2009Presented by:Joseph KressOCDL Program ManagerCOLSA Corporation
2 The Huntsville OneSAF Co-Development Lab OCDL Mission: Provide SMDC an in-house integrated and demonstrable M&S 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 models.
3 Co-Development Lab Milestones May ISR 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.December Internal Federation Demonstration with OneSAF, Space Server, and CES. Verified component and federation connection thru RTI.February Space-Based SATCOM/TACSAT 3 Handover. Functionality included: HSI Sensor Representation; Enhanced Target Detection; TACSAT3 representation; SATCOM Constellations; SATCOM Networks; and SATCOM Message Distribution.March EW Research Project Kickoff.Sept-Oct HA Project Kickoff.Nov EW Comms/GPS Jammer Models Handover.20052006200720082009April OCDL concept explored based on FACT requirementsAugust ODCL initiated: IDE Servers Arrive and User/IDE/Training conducted.September OneSAF JBFSA Research Project Kickoff.October OneSAF Research Project Kickoff. Joint Federation program. Provides an environment to examine Space Effects on a Communications network.December Dedication of COLSA OCDL: Established to facilitate Space Modeling and Simulation Development efforts. Introduced the capability to community.February 2nd 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.July JBFSA 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.
