Abstract : The development of new avionics systems should be guided and supported by force level analysis. Evaluation at the force level is necessary in order to assure that a concept, as it is conceived and developed, will indeed provide a significant increase in capability when the resulting weapon system is used in an operational environment. The Weapons and Tactics Analysis Center (WEPTAC) at the Naval Weapons Center is a war-gaming facility for doing force level analysis. It is used to evaluate weapon systems and tactics as they would be employed in realistic scenarios involving opposing forces. It provides a valuable tool, therefore, the evaluation of avionics concepts. This paper discusses the importance of force level analysis in avionics system development, describes the WEPTAC facility, and gives an example of the use of WEPTAC to evaluate an avionics concept.
