Abstract : The growing cost of physical tests and evaluations of military systems has resulted in increased use of computer simulations to provide decision support information. Many such systems, such as weapons and countermeasure systems, rely on sensors. Hence, development of widely applicable computer models for sensors is vitally important. This research investigates the possibility of developing sensor simulations as components for use in models with varying fidelity and purpose. Development of abstractions is emphasized to maximize the applicability of components in a variety of modeling contexts. Concrete examples of reusable sensor components are demonstrated in working models and a preliminary design for a generalized modeling framework is proposed.
