Join us for our 09 July 2024 Chapter meeting featuring:

Main Presentation: "Darth Vader's Secret Weapon: Implementing Mission Engineering with UAF", by Matthew Hause 

Abstract: 

Mission Engineering (ME) is often misunderstood. This paper will explore modeling features and constructs that will enable ME. The proposed extensions for UAF include Missions, Mission Phases, Mission Thread, ME Thread, measures, additional attributes/stereotypes to differentiate between enemy/friendly/neutral forces, provenance/confidence of enemy resources, etc. We will also cover compatibility with the Model-Based Acquisition (MBAcq) approach, recent initiatives from the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Mission Capabilities, Enterprise Systems Engineering (ESE) process and methods, detailed resource engagement, use of SysML, etc. We created a prototype model using the Battle of Hoth from Star Wars as a proof of concept for these modeling extensions and used the process and mission engineering concepts defined in the Mission Engineering Guide (MEG). This presentation will cut through the confusion like a light saber to help attendees become Jedi Masters in ME.
