A portfolio-analysis tool for missile defense (PAT-MD) : methodology and user's manual by Paul Dreyer( )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report documents the underlying methodology of RAND's Portfolio-Analysis Tool for Missile Defense (PAT-MD), an analytic tool developed to facilitate high-level discussion of program tradeoffs and adjustments in the Missile Defense Agency (MDA). PAT-MD provides summary portfolio-style characterizations of alternative investment options, including projected capabilities in different missions, the balance of emphasis across missions, the managing of risks, and economic considerations such as relative cost-effectiveness. PAT-MD and a companion tool, RAND's Capabilities Analysis Model for Missile Defense (CAMMD), make it possible to "zoom" to higher levels of detail in order to understand the basis of high-level characterizations and how they would change if assumptions or priorities were changed. PAT-MD provides five scoring and aggregation methods that correspond mathematically to alternative aggregation functions. The appropriate method-e.g., simple linear weighted sums or nonlinear methods that enforce the concept that a system with several critical components will fail if any of its critical components fail-depends on the analysis and context. Significantly, PAT-MD also provides a straightforward way to test sensitivity to goals and thresholds in order to ensure that results are not unduly sensitive to arbitrary assumptions. The report also serves as a user's guide to PAT-MD

Experiments with Sun Java Real-Time system : ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This is our second report on the Sun Java Real-Time System (RTS) experiments. In this report we describe the findings on RTS 2.0 beta release that includes the real-time garbage collector (RTGC). We performed a number of experiments to determine whether the availability of RTGC will result in a better software architecture for the Global Integrated Fire Control System (GIFC)--a component of the C2BMC element of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). Our experiment shows that it is possible to use only the Real-Time Java threads that use the heap memory for the GIFC software. SUN RTJ 2.0 gives programmers more control over the priority of the garbage collection. We developed a real-time monitor design pattern to support the implementation of time-constrained computations that use the heap memory, and a methodology to determine the RTS run-time parameters (thread priorities, memory usage, process load, and task deadlines) necessary for the timely execution of these time-constrained computations

Test and evaluation of the Ballistic Missile Defense System : FY03 progress report ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This report summarizes the work done in FY03 to develop a systematic engineering-based approach for constructing a high-level architecture for a Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). We developed six UML use cases to identify the external agents and systems that are involved in a typical missile-defense scenario. Based on these use cases, we developed the top level of a distributed architecture of a BMDS and conducted simulation studies to analyze the network requirements to support such an architecture. We also developed a physical model to analyze the sensor requirements to successfully detect and track a ballistic missile throughout the boost phase
