INTEGRATED WEAPON SYSTEM SIMULATION
Integrated simulation of all weapon system elements is an inescapable
reality in all modern complex weapon systems. Surface-to-air missile weapon
systems are quite complex with multiplicity of elements like mission control
centre, launch control centre, multiple radars and missiles. DRDO has
developed a distributed simulation set up to simulate sophisticated air
defence systems. The simulation paradigm comprises sequential communi-cating
processes on distributed systems and is event driven. Two major packages
Vyuha and Chakra Vyuha have been developed.
The main objectives of the packages are: weapon system performance prediction, interfacing with weapon system elements, evaluation of system level algorithms, Monte Carlo simulations, sensitivity and breaking point analysis, countermeasure evaluation, evaluation of weapon system planning and user training.
