Paper Abstract

The primary objective of the Smart Weapons Operability Enhancement (SWOE) Joint Test and Evaluation (JT&E) Program is to validate the SWOE Process for the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The SWOE Process is a physics based scene generation capability that will enhance the performance of future smart weapon systems for a global variety of battlefield environments. This process is focused on generating complex background environmental scenes, including targets, for a world wide range of battlefield conditions. The SWOE program is a DoD wide partnership incorporating capabilities from the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force. The principal thrusts of SWOE are to quantitatively define the environmental factors and processes and to provide the capabilities to measure, model, render and extrapolate their impact on smart weapon system performance. The Grayling I exercise is the first in a series of four coordinate field deployments focused on validation of the SWOE Process. This paper describes the experimental design, sampling plans, measurement efforts and summarizes preliminary results of the Grayling I exercise.
