A New Take on Modeling & Simulation for Improved Autonomy

Multiple factors limit the potential of modern autonomous systems (e.g., self-driving vehicles and uncrewed aircraft and watercraft). Autonomy is learned through modeling and simulation, given the expense of training in the real world. Generally, it goes like this: A model of the intended platform requiring autonomy is created. The model goes through various simulations in…


Notable Technical Inquiry

U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Decoys

The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC) was asked to identify what decoys were being developed and/or fielded by the DoD. Decoys across the Services, including radars, missiles, and vehicles, were included.  DSIAC staff provided responses from subject matter experts with the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) PMA-208 and NAVAIR’s Target Threat Simulation Program. The inquiry was supplemented with a bibliography from DTIC’s Research…
