Title

Simulation for a Coevolved System-of-Systems Meta-Architecture

Abstract

The increasing complexity of modern systems poses challenges for understanding how these systems can be designed to best operate. Uncertainties in the operating environment and coevolution contribute to such complexity. This paper describes the simulation of a counter-Trafficking system-of-systems that has undergone competitive coevolution. A notional future meta-Architecture, consisting of manned and unmanned air and maritime systems, is also presented. The logic driving the model is summarized, and preliminary results are presented. The results identify driving factors of system performance, highlighting those outside the direct control of system designers or operators. These results help systems engineers better plan future system-of-system capabilities.
