Military Modeling Tools

The Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) is using collaborative modeling tools and trade study approaches to tackle military design challenges.

For the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, researchers developed the Engineered Resilient Systems (ERS) Tradespace to help design defense equipment for maximum future usability. ERS uses web-based collaborative systems engineering and tradespace tools to identify the best combinations of adaptability, longevity, and cost-effectiveness.

For the U.S. Navy, GTRI is employing novel set-based design approaches to support capability concepts aimed at ensuring maximum design flexibility for the development of undersea command and control and unmanned underwater vehicles. — Rick Robinson
