ISR Analysis

Integrating National and Tactical ISR Enterprises

With over 40 years of experience successfully delivering ISR systems engineering and integration (SE&I) capabilities to our customers, the SI’s scalable platform for architecture, modeling and simulation, and analysis is proven to help customers optimize resources and manage risk. Our technical expertise enables our customers to make informed decisions regarding both ISR and Non-Traditional ISR.

In a fiscally constrained environment, the need to incrementally improve capabilities and the use of non-traditional sensors and platforms are of critical importance. We believe the most cost-effective means to improve national and tactical ISR capability and maximize the value of current systems is through the utilization of non-traditional sensors and processing. We utilize a breadth of both enterprise-level and highly-detailed modeling, simulation and analysis tools, along with customer interaction, to select the most cost effective architectural alternatives.

Our architecture support capabilities include performing “what if” trades using integrated enterprise applications and data sets, an automated methodology for combining and visualizing disparate architectures using various scenarios, and visualization tools for systems-of-systems that assist in the identification of capabilities, capability gaps, redundancies, and funding needs. Our modeling and simulation solutions support the full life cycle of a sensor system, address community needs for ISR architecture analysis capabilities, and support end-to-end mission and systems performance analysis of collection systems. We also focus heavily on analysis by investigating the marginal utility of adding various types of ISR collectors to the ISR enterprise, integrating resource management and analysis for dynamic optimization of ISR assets, and supporting space systems engineering and analysis with high quality visualization and analysis products.


Effects-Based Modeling and Simulation

The SI relates the desired outcome to the military (or other action) against points in the opposition “chain” of activities.

Interoperability Evaluation

Interoperability evaluation relates network access attributes with operational ability to construct a “mission chain” to achieve a desired outcome. The SI also examines the cost and benefits of adding links or access between systems.

Weapon System Modeling and Simulation

The SI relates the performance of systems or links to 'kill chain' outcomes or Measures of Effectiveness (MOEs). This is often used for Program Objective Memorandum (POM) support and/or cost-benefit analysis.

ISR Architecture Modeling and Analysis

The SI diagrams new or existing systems against architecture frameworks, particularly for ISR Tasking, Collection, Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination missions (TCPED) in support of the Joint Capabilities Integration Development System (JCIDS) milestone requirements process.
