ETTC Contract: InDyne manages airspace data and analyzes potential (simulated) conflicts using simulation and analysis processes developed by our personnel to ensure safe use of the multitude of test ranges within the expansive Eglin Test and Training Complex. Frequently, simultaneous tests are performed throughout the ETTC, and it is imperative that all customers are assured a safe test environment free of interference by other testing activities. Profiles are drawn based on latitude/longitude metadata, center point/radius, and a variety of GIS boundaries (roads, rivers, ranges, airspace, and other captured data) to meet planning and scheduling requirements using GeoMedia geospatial data applications. InDyne’s personnel collaborate to design, develop, and document modeled environments and configurations. We also develop and maintain model user guides and provide training to range users.
InDyne manages several ETTC facilities that stimulate smart weapons or instrumentation, via simulation or real hardware-in-the-loop, to collect data on weapon fly-out, engagement, seeker/sensor performance, and to characterize target signatures. For example, at the Guided Weapons Evaluation Facility InDyne develops target scenes in various spectra to include IR, EO, MMW, RF, and develops then runs the various missile fly-out models.
ALATEC has developed and delivered significant modeling and simulation and analysis support services over the past three years. As the prime contract support to the Training and Doctrine Command Analysis Center, ALATEC has developed several data manipulation tools and has led development of the Combat Analysis Tool for the 21st Century (COMBATXXI). ALATEC also provides support to TRAC in the use and One Semi-Automated Forces (OneSAF) simulation and assists in the execution of studies and wargames and resulting analysis. ALATEC also provides simulation support to the Fires Center of Excellence where we provide development support to the FireSIM XXI proponent and to the Mission Simulation Center for simulation development and the execution of Joint Conflict and Tactical Simulation (JCATS) suite.

As part of our engineering support to advanced projects, our ESTS team provides support for system modeling and simulations involving technical, cost, schedule and associated risks with safety, reliability, maintainability and supportability inputs from Engineering, as part of the Integrated Design of Systems effort at MSFC. In addition, APL performs a wide variety of engineering analysis and assessment on the ESTS contract. Our team supports multiple NASA departments and top-level project offices in the area of propulsion acoustics/vibroacoustics engineering. This work includes providing analysis of data and analysis and verification for vehicle design.

FBM P&DSS Contract: On the Trident II D-5 FBM P&DSS contract, LM applies a standardized, rigorous, structured methodology to create and validate a physical, mathematical, and logical representation of a system, entity, phenomenon, or process. This modeling and simulation process is utilized during DASO (Demonstration and Shakeout) exercises to ensure a fully functional missile is on hand to combat threats faced by the United States.
Bioastronautics Contract: MEIT provides employees who develop physical models, prototypes, simulators in both the science and engineering sides of the contract. The Habitability Design Center provides system engineering services, in a Design Development capacity, in the following phases: Mission Systems Engineering A-C, and Instrument Systems Engineering A-C, focusing heavily on the Architecture & Design Development. MEIT employees were responsible for the design development of various spacecraft and habitat architectures for Lunar Architecture Team) and the Constellation Architecture Team. MEIT employees supported various Phase C project documentation generation (Operations Concepts and Support, Requirements Analysis, Identification & Management, Verification and Validation) for various projects for the IVA FCE team: ISS Jumper Cables, Lego Bricks Payload, multiple crew request tools, IVA Tools & Diagnostic equipment.
Argonaut Contract: Use standard models to simulate Directed Energy engagements. Modify existing models to incorporate more input parameters for a given engagement. Verify models against real world data.
DHEP Contract: Our use of simulations various from project to project depending on needs, but can include large Mission simulations at JSC involving astronaut crews and operators to desktop simulations of experiment data and comm. flow. In a general sense, environmental testing is another methodology to verify operation in constrained environments. We have conducted these processes and used these systems for over 200 experiment packages over a 20 year period.
