Planning Airborne Network Capabilities for Mobile Ground Users – Zack Shaw, Wyle
Wyle is currently engaged in several studies, prototyping and analyses with ESC/XR and DoD customers in the Boston and Washington D.C. areas. Some activities involve test and evaluation of airborne networks and ground systems with the disadvantaged user in mind. Wyle uses STK during the planning phase for nearly every test event to predict link margin and antennae gain, and enhance technical decision-making. Decisions include optimal aircraft antenna use, placement and configuration to mitigate co-site and maximize range to ground users and also placement of ground users to either stress or optimize the network architecture. Planners used STK’s object insertion functionality to swap antenna objects on the aircraft (in this case a Cessna 206 operated by Avwatch). This helped engineers define the best possible placement and configuration of CDL waveform antennae for optimal performance. Wyle's most recent validation activity for the AF Tactical Data Network (TDN) Lab included use of STK to plan testing of advanced airborne communications that enable, among other things, full motion video (FMV) and voiceover IP (VoIP) services through an airborne gateway. Using local airspace around Hanscom AFB as well as imported DTED data, planners and stakeholders were able to clearly visualize the challenges of terrain, orbit and distance on air-to-ground communications.

Enhanced System Architecture Design and Evaluation with STK Tom Porter, Serco Inc.
The Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) provides a common means for developing and representing architecture descriptions across all DoD weapons and information technology system acquisitions. DoDAF defines a set of views that act as mechanisms for visualizing, understanding and assimilating the broad scope and complexities of an architecture. Among these, the Operational View Level 1 (OV-1) provides graphical and textual description of operational concepts including its high-level organizations, missions, geographic configuration and connectivity. Traditionally, OV-1 views are limited in their ability to model and visualize the physical environment and its interaction with the architecture. This significantly reduces the accuracy of the OV-1 view and results in an inability to present the architecture to stakeholders in a visually understandable way. Serco has successfully overcome these limitations with a new tool that enables activity models from Unified Modeling Language (UML)-compliant tools to "drive" physics-based 3D graphics using STK as the simulation framework. This new tool, dubbed the UML Animator, has been the cornerstone for capabilities-based assessments, exercise planning and mission area concept of operations development and refinement. In addition, the UML Animator has proven highly successful in assisting non-architects to verify and validate architectural findings.

System Architecture Analysis with STK – Michael Fuentes, NASA Glenn Research Center
NASA’s Space Communication and Navigation (SCaN) program has developed an integrated network architecture to advance its space operational and service capabilities to support its current and future mission users requirements. The architecture’s main requirements include a unified and networked infrastructure, high-data rate links, interoperability, standard services and the reduction of operational costs. New modeling and analysis techniques are required to rapidly define and analyze the complex architecture options while offering improvements in accessibility, flexibility and interoperability. A suite of tools comprised of COTS and custom software has been integrated into the SCaN Simulator to evaluate architecture design options, feasibility and performance. AGI’s STK is one of the tools used to model and analyze the physics, orbital dynamics and radio frequency (RF) characteristics of space communication links. Oftentimes, the issues which the SCaN program addresses involve more information than the physical properties of communication. STK provides flexibility to integrate other COTS tools and custom software to improve NASA’s modeling and simulation capabilities. With the integration for MATLAB, a new scintillation loss model was developed to improve the performance of low-elevation link analysis. By incorporating QualNet via a custom-developed interface, end-to-end network performance can be analyzed. The integration of AGI’s STK/Scheduler, QualNet and custom interface software is enabling analysis of a realistic traffic load on a network.

Advanced Communications Network Analysis Using STK – David Gibbons, U.S. Marine Corps Combat Development Command
Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET) are interconnected systems of wireless nodes capable of forming self-healing, self-learning communications networks. This technology enables rapid, reliable transfer of information throughout the battlespace. The Marine Corps is currently developing, purchasing and fielding new radio devices capable of forming MANET. The Marine Corps Combat Development Command (MCCDC) recently completed high-resolution simulation and analysis to determine the quantifiable advantages of using MANET architectures over traditional circuit-switched voice architectures. This study also examined MANET architectures in support of over-the-horizon amphibious operations, and quantified the ability of MANET assets to enable greater dispersion within the Marine Corps infantry battalion. The results of this study could inform procurement decisions and influence Marine Corps tactics, techniques and procedures. STK’s ability to evaluate signal strength between moving or stationary objects while taking terrain into account was a great asset in the study. With some help from AGI staff, MCCDC was able to develop code that quickly generated signal strength between every two objects of interest in the scenarios. Using STK also allowed engineers to build off of previous scenarios built in the STK environment, saving time and effort. MCCDC also used AGI’s Urban Propagation plugin (developed with Remcom) to look at an urban environment’s effect on communications when using MANET architectures.

Using STKv10 to Develop and Refine Integrated CONOPS - Joyce Stivers, TASC
A key concern in any military conflict is the vulnerability of space-based communication networks which support the projection of U.S. military power. As a consequence, any perceived threat to space-based communication systems will likely result in the deployment of backup airborne communication and C2 systems to mitigate the potential loss of friendly space systems. This scenario using STKv10 will show the use of timing delays between the detection of a possible threat to a communication asset and the deployment of an UAV from an aircraft carrier. The UAV will use the new Calculation Tool to determine how long it can stay airborne and safely return to the carrier. The escort satellite will use the tool to determine when it can provide a positive identification of the threat object and this will be coupled with a time delay before it is determined that the threat is in fact space debris and the UAV can be safely recalled. Since all time delays and calculations are user defined, these new STKv10 capabilities provide a very powerful tool for developing and refining CONOPS. By identifying, analyzing and coupling critical time delays and user-defined calculations, system engineering activities are well supported.

Simulating Mobile Hardware and the GNSS Solution by Integrating Spirent's SimGEN with STK – John Pottle, Spirent Positioning Technology
Modeling and simulation of prototype hardware in real GNSS environments is expensive and time consuming, but essential in order to understand the performance characteristics prior to full scale manufacture. Spirent develops and manufactures hardware/software products to stimulate and evaluate the performance of stationary and mobile GNSS hardware systems under a wide range of conditions. AGI's STK excels at the generation, ease of use, and fidelity, depiction and analysis of aircraft and spacecraft trajectories. Further, it's multiple API's enable easy integration with other systems. AGI and Spirent have created an integration between STK and Spirent's SimGENTM GNSS RF simulator control software. This integration provides STK-derived asset mission routes, either in advance of, or in real-time, to Spirent's SimGEN hardware/software suite. The combination of STK and SimGEN more easily and accurately simulates and visualizes mobile hardware (aircraft or spacecraft) and the GNSS solution associated with that hardware. Both the STK or SimGEN simulated GNSS derived position and the Unit Under Test (UUT), can be visualized, explored and geometrically analyzed during the operation of the test. This presentation will introduce the software suites, demonstrate how the integration works, what it achieves and why it matters.
