Raytheon Co. won a contract from the U.S. Missile Defense Agency to develop an automated tool to assess the effectiveness of weapons used in wargames. The system will automatically teach participants which weapons to use in every possible scenario.
The Coordinated Cyber/Electronic Warfare Integrated Fires [CCEWIF] program will use a mix of kinetic and non-kinetic option to assess the probabilities of success within a wargames scenario, Raytheon says.
“This really is a first-of-its-kind tool that brings together automation, analytics, and cyber capabilities,” says Todd Probert, vice president of Mission Support and Modernization at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and services. “This unique program will give our military an edge in today’s digital battlespace when seconds count and they need options and answers fast.”
The program ingests real-world data about threats and these kinetic and non-kinetic analyses generate realistic simulations. Raytheon then uses a mathematical foundation to provide probabilities of success, predicted battle damage to the target, and confidence values for those predictions.
As an example, Raytheon pointed out that CCEWIF could be used to determine the probabilities of success for different cyber, electronic warfare, and munition options to take out an enemy ballistic missile before, during, and after launch.
