Description/Abstract

The goal of this work was to demonstrate the application of a process modeling approach to architect a system of systems (SoS) capable of conducting anti-submarine (undersea) warfare (ASW) operations projecting to the year 2025. Process modeling is a methodology for architectural analysis for complex systems whose operation is characterized by “processes” whose sequential execution may be scaled-up to understand overall system behaviour. It is ideally suited to address complexity and interoperability issues of an ASW SoS. New contributions of this work include: the successful implementation of a process modeling approach to architect an ASW SoS, and a cohesive set of results analyzing operation of an ASW SoS as a series of processes with future projections to the year 2025. We believe this work may serve as a foundation for future systems engineering research addressing the interoperability and performance of complex systems of systems whose function is closely tied to time-dependent processes, with particular application for military and security systems.
