A Systems Approach to Terrorist Attacks on Critical Infrastructure

Keywords: -

This research looks at the Critical Infrastructure (CI) network in Singapore from a systems perspective. It engages with the role of CI interdependencies, vulnerabilities, and terrorism trends for CI protection. Using Singapore as the analysis benchmark, this research aims to identify areas and sectors of CI that are the most vulnerable, through the use of causal loop diagrams, to recommend appropriate protection measures from the counterterrorism and CI protection perspectives. Using Rapoport’s Four Waves Theory on Terrorism to make assessments…

Analysis of Rare Earth Element Supply Chain Resilience During a Major Conflict

Keywords: resilience, major conflict, industrial kill chain, logistics, near peer, rare earth element, supply chain

This report explores the extension of the conventional “kill chain” in a counterintuitive manner. Utilizing lessons learned from the Systems Engineering Analysis Capstone Report (SEA-29) work in “Logistics in a Contested Environment,” the “kill chain” is re-defined backward from warhead detonation to “metal bending and metal delivery.” This process provides a more well-rounded examination of Department of Defense (DOD) efforts to maintain supply lines in a major conflict, specifically, those supply lines that provide key rare earth elements (REE) to…

Evaluation of a Systems Proposal

Keywords: -

The report will document the approach taken to develop a framework to evaluate a system proposal from the viewpoint of the UK MOD’s Defence Lines of Development (DLoD), based on a proposed operating environment and scenario. The readers will be presented with a selection of system engineering tools, accompanied by the respective explanation of use. Based on the given scenario, a technical analysis will be carried out by the technology specialists to identify key areas (mobility, guided weapon and autonomous),…

Logistics in Contested Environments

Keywords: logistics, contested, great-power competition

This report examines the transport and delivery of logistics in contested environments within the context of great-power competition (GPC). Across the Department of Defense (DOD), it is believed that GPC will strain our current supply lines beyond their capacity to maintain required warfighting capability. Current DOD efforts are underway to determine an appropriate range of platforms, platform quantities, and delivery tactics to meet the projected logistics demand in future conflicts. This report explores the effectiveness of various platforms and delivery…

Agent-Based Simulation for Large-Scale Drone Defence Network

Keywords: -

There is currently a lack of effective simulation tool to assist in the design of air defence system against aerial threat, such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Thus, the objective of this thesis is to address such threat by developing a simulation model that enables user to rapidly test different scenarios by considering variation in parameters for defensive assets and hostile intruder UAVs, probability of detection, probability of kill etc.  To achieve this, this thesis adopted a 2-phase approach, namely…

Development Of Closed System Vessel Technique To Analyse Degradation Of Nitrocellulose

Keywords: Chemiluminescence, Decomposition mechanism, System approach

Previously, it has been demonstrated how a chemiluminescence technique, also known as swept test, can be used to analyse the decomposition mechanism of nitrocellulose (NC) under the influence of moisture in varying temperatures. The open system experimental setup has provided a good starting point to explore how chemiluminescence technique can be effectively employed to analyse the decomposition rate of NC under varying conditions. Following which, the focus of this integrated project is to design, verify and validate the concept of…

Distributed Maritime Operations And Unmanned Systems Tactical Employment

Keywords: Distributed Maritime Operations, DMO, Tactical Employment of Unmanned Systems

The concept of Distributed Maritime Operations intends to enable a force that is capable of winning a fleet-on-fleet engagement through the integration of manned and unmanned systems, execution of deceptive tactics, and emboldening of units to conduct offensive strikes. This report contributes to the concept of DMO in the 2030-2035 timeframe through the development of an operational simulation that examines the ability for various compositions of multi-domain fleet assets to perform tactical operations in a naval combat environment. This project…

Developing a webfires training system

Keywords: webfires, integrated fires, net-centric warfare, cross-domain, kill web, kill chain, tactical cloud, distributed lethality, support, conduct, evaluate, sustainment, deployment, integrated, basic, simulation, at-sea, in-port, training, OFRP, optimized flee

This project report describes a proposed foundation for a system-of-systems training architecture that closes gaps in the Navy’s current strike group training processes to more effectively train and support warfighters in the execution of a webfires concept. Today’s fleet training systems lack the capability and capacity to provide adequate integrated training that leverages the necessary high-velocity learning expected of future warfighters who will employ and implement the webfires concept in the next 10 to 15 years. The current training processes…

Unmanned Systems In Integrating Cross-Domain Naval Fires

Keywords: unmanned systems, cross domain, unmanned aerial vehicles, naval fires, targeting, distributed lethality, anti-access, area denial, denied, disrupted, degraded, low-bandwidth environment

The ability to communicate and transmit targeting data via the electromagnetic spectrum is crucial to the Navy’s ability to fight. However, in recent years, potential adversaries have significantly advanced their electronic warfare capabilities, obtaining an ability to interfere with the Navy’s use of the electromagnetic spectrum during operations in contested environments. SEA23 investigates concepts of operation focusing on future potential electromagnetic-spectrum warfighting capabilities in the 2025–2030 timeframe. Specifically, we explore these capabilities using modular unmanned and manned platforms capable of…

Project Eagle Eye

Keywords: -

SUMMARY The project was initiated with a given set of Concept-Of-Operations (CONOPS) where System Engineering was applied to derive the requirements and establish a development process to ensure that the product fulfills the needs and constraints. Cross faculty integration facilitated the software expertise necessary for the development but was not inherent in the System Engineering faculty.             The first quarter focused on the Preliminarily Design Review (PDR) where the requirements were derived and translated to functions which were subsequently decomposed…
