3 Outline SoS Engineering and Architecting Background Research Objectives Research Methodology – Agent Based Model – Genetic Algorithm – Fuzzy Evaluation Agent-based Wave Model Status Questions 3

4 SoS Engineering and Architecting Acknowledged SoS Characteristics – Collaborate with existing systems/programs – Leverage individual functionalities/capabilities – Minor changes – cheap, fast; Existing missions remain! – Achieve new, hi-value SoS purpose/mission/capability Assumption: SoS participants exhibit nominal behavior – Deviation from nominal behavior leads to complications and disturbances in system behavior and SoS success Necessary to capture behavioral dimension of SoS architecting to improve SoS acquisition – Not the normal DoDI acquisition/development process 4

5 Acknowledged SoS The SoS manager has a requirement for a new capability, not currently available, but potentially available with small modifications to existing Systems; there may be small funding available for the SoS The component Systems are independently managed and funded – They have their own missions, requirements, and stakeholders independent of the SoS – They may be in any stage of their life cycle – There are no guarantees that they will be able to deliver any part of the capability they are asked to provide to the SoS Participation in the SoS may be desired, but infeasible 5

6 Background Wave Model for SoS Acquisition 6

7 Research Objectives Develop a Model of SoS acquisition based on the Wave Process Model Test the concept implementation on the DoD Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) domain Ultimate goal – Explore the impact of individual system behavior on SoS development How do system characteristics, systems interactions, SoS initial requested capabilities, and other elements affect: – Capabilities Actually Developed vs. Planned Capabilities – Duration of the SoS development – Strategies for improving acquisition effectiveness Examine decision framework Test rules of engagement changes 7

8 Case Study - ISR Mission /RPA SoS Individual systems – Remotely Piloted Aircraft – Fighter Aircraft, JSTARS, U-2 – Datalinks (Link 16…)/ SATCOM… – Ground Control Station(s)… – Sensors (Wide Area Search, Electro-Optic, Radar)… – Weapon(s) – Exploitation Centers Target scenario – Gulf War Scud Launchers 8

18 Best SoS Architecture The SoS meta-architecture is expressed as an optimization problem to find the best architecture through genetic algorithm methods


20 SoS Fuzzy Attributes Performance – Coverage, Prob of detection, Timeliness, etc Affordability – Development and Operations Costs vs budget Flexibility – Ability of SoS Manager to Develop Capabilities from Multiple Systems Robustness – Minimize Capability Lost Through Loss of 1 Platform in Operation 20

23 Fuzzy Assessments for ISR fitness 23

24 Fuzzy Evaluation Allows Both Non-Linearity and Simplicity 24 Plain Language Rule If ANY attribute is Unaccptable, then SoS is Unacceptable If ALL the attributes are Exceeds, then the SoS is Exceeds If ALL the attributes are Marginal, then the SoS is Unacceptable If ALL the attributes are Acceptable, then the SoS is Exceeds If (Performance AND Affordability ) are Exceeds, but (Dev. Flexibility and Robustness) are Marginal, then the SoS is Acceptable If ALL attributes EXCEPT ONE are Marginal, then the SoS is still Marginal

25 Plan SoS Update At time T: Adjust/Update SoS Measures Capability update factor: Performance update factor: SoS Measures update factor: At T=0 SoS Measures at time T: Adjust wave rhythm interval: Adjust budget/schedule for allocated capabilities 25

26 Implement SoS Architecture Evaluate current SoS architecture against initial baseline Architecture 26

27 Proposed Agent Based Model 27

28 Individual System Behavior 1.Receive connectivity request from SoS agent 2.Evaluate request based on motivation – Pressure from outside – Capability – Desire to participate – Selfishness 3.Reply back to SoS agent 28

29 Evaluate SoS Request Individual System: System performance: System capability: Willingness to cooperate: Ability to cooperate: Receive request from SoS agent: Evaluate SoS request: 29

30 Reply back to SoS Agent If where system availability at time T= else time to cooperate: 30
