Engineering of Complex Defence Systems

A Engineering project by John Smith Senior in Australia

E014672

Modern Defence systems need to be able to be integrated [in a “plug and play” manner] into hybrid system of systems to address short term national and international demands and on completion of such missions be disassembled to return to their prior roles. These hybrid system of systems integrate human activity systems with advanced technology [sociotechnical systems] to produce complex defence capabilities. More recently, the move by Western countries towards embracing net centric warfare concepts such as distributed functionality and composeability imply that system components that may have been designed to be platform centric now need to operate in a network centric manner – hence the metaphor of “plug and play”. This has introduced further complexity in the development of defence systems.

This research aims to examine how does one design such complex systems to meet demands that are not envisioned at the time of development and be able to integrate with other capabilities not contemplated during development. Such is the challenge to modern defence system engineering.
