U.S. missile defense experts are surveying industry to find companies able to develop computer simulations of enemy missiles and missile-related observables to help government and industry improve better ballistic missile defense systems and enabling technologies.

Officials of the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) in Huntsville, Ala., issued a sources-sought notice (MDA18EITRFI01) on Monday for the MDA Threat Systems Engineering Innovation in Production, Modeling, and Simulation project.

MDA officials are most interested in missile simulations to help develop threat specifications, threat models, characterizations, scenarios, and trajectory data. MDA officials are concerned about enemy missile systems that continue to evolve, proliferate, and that are increasingly complex.
