DCS specializes in State of the Art M&S-based technology development, technology assessment and analysis. DCS is the prime contractor for the Air Vehicles Technology Assessment and Simulation (AVTAS) Lab and Crew Systems Integration Lab (CSIL) providing comprehensive MS&A for AFRL.
DCS has over two decades of experience performing weapon systems effectiveness analysis using a simulation-based research and development approach. We formulate trade space problems, conduct design of experiments and use the latest data analysis techniques to answer challenging operations research questions. We use a variety of campaign, mission, engagement, and engineering level tools. We employ constructive, virtual, and live simulation approaches to conduct these evaluations. We are experts in building suitable system/subsystem models, constructing relevant, multi-domain environments, and running experiments of complex scenarios.
In support of Air Force Research Laboratory, DCS is a principal contributor to the Advanced Framework for Simulation, Integration and Modeling (AFSIM) code base, integrating capability updates from the user community, developing tools, and managing software distribution. We developed and support critical AFSIM support tools for scenario generation (Wizard) and interactive analyses (Warlock), distributed with the code base. We support the AFSIM helpdesk function and provide AFSIM user and developer training.
To facilitate these efforts, we provide end-to-end Simulation-based R&D to include:
- Constructive, virtual, & hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) mission simulation
- Cockpit & UAS control station simulations
- Constructive engagement and engineering simulation
- Campaign simulation
- Distributed mission simulation
- Experimental design, Design of Experiments (DOE), and statistical analysis
- Model management and distribution
- DCS performs autonomy and cooperative control algorithm development and evaluation, R&D of architecture, tools, and autonomy initiatives to enhance operator performance with pilot decision aids and controlling multiple remotely piloted vehicles
