An effective way to get systems from development to the field is through something called "physics modeling." As its name suggests, physics modeling uses all sorts of physics data - from speed, weight, vibration and torque to temperature, humidity, wind, dust, ballistics, and even aging, to name just a few - to simulate real-world conditions that a new weapons system might be subject to. New systems, shown here, were on display at the Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting held in Washington, D.C.
Expert: Rapid modeling of new systems vital to countering threats
Winning in an increasingly complex world means overcoming unforeseen and rapidly-emerging threats, Dr. Jeffery Holland said. The Army and the rest of the Department of Defense cannot yet effectively counter unanticipated threats with new weapons systems, he argued, because to get from design to program of record to fielding takes upwards of 10 years. In the meantime, new technology "disrupts that program of record." Holland spoke about engineered resilient systems, or ERS, at the National Defense Industrial Association-sponsored 18th Annual Systems Engineering Conference, Oct. 28. New systems, shown here, were on display at the Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting held in Washington, D.C.
