PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mikros Systems Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: MKRS) announced today the award of a new U.S. Navy contract to develop Network Vulnerability to Electronic Attack (NVEA) analysis and simulation software for the Naval Air Warfare Center, Weapons Division (NAWCWD). The new contract extends support for Mikros network analysis work started under previous contracts, and is valued at $750,000 over two years.
The NVEA development will support emerging Navy requirements for Mission Based Test Design (MBTD). The Navy hopes to prove that mission-based evaluation will reduce costs and technical risks by introducing operational testing earlier in development programs, and will extend the service life of Naval assets by combining modeling and simulation (M&S) with laboratory hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and a minimum number of operational units.
The NVEA tool will model electronic threats to modern tactical data links, which are an essential component of net-centric warfare (NCW). NVEA will be implemented as a core library of modeling constructs and analytical functions that will be used in several applications. Warfare analysts and system engineers will use NVEA to realistically model the effect of jamming on mission performance. Mission planners will use NVEA to determine staging areas, ISR placement, attack routes, and tactics to minimize the effect of enemy communications jamming.
"We are excited that the Navy has extended their support for our NVEA efforts, and we look forward to being a part of this important Navy initiative," said Henry Silcock, Chief Technology Officer of Mikros.
