A Time-Sensitive Targets System Simulation Model Based on Extendsim

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 367)


Precision strike of time-sensitive targets requires high-efficiency systems to perform surveillance, reconnaissance, tracking, command, control, striking and effect evaluation in limited time accurately. This paper analyzes architecture and operational process of time-sensitive targets systems, and presents a discrete-event simulation model of time-sensitive targets system. Within the model, target generating and evolving, reconnaissance plane, command and control, fire strike shooter are modeled based on ExtendSim. Simulation rationale and simulation model in typical scenario is built. The joint military planner can assess mission success probability and average length of kill chain, and study variations and sensitivities in a controlled manner among different plan of weapon resources by the simulation model.
