Ship Air Defence Model (SADM) is a physics based modelling and simulation (M&S) tool developed by BAE Systems Australia to assist an organisation gain a broad understanding of a system’s capabilities and vulnerabilities and to determine what tactics would provide the greatest likelihood of survivability.
Using SADM, analysts can conduct trade-off studies, performance analyses and explore an extensive range of scenarios that may be too costly and time prohibitive to be conducted as field trials.
The most versatile model for maritime air defence analysis has just got better.
SADM v6 is already in use in 39 organisations in 13 different countries, however the next generation of SADM, SADM v7 is already feature rich and will soon eclipse the features of SADM v6.
Aircraft, Ships, Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV)
Missiles (cruise, ballistic, intercept)
Guns (Naval, CIWS)
Laser Directed Energy Weapon (LDEW)
Countermeasures (active decoys, passive decoys)
Electronic Attack (jammers)
Radars, Directors and Illuminators
Electronic Support Measures (ESM)
Interrogator Friend, or Foe (IFF)
EO/IR Sensors, including scene generation to support visual and infrared trackers
To analyse the outcome of the simulation, SADM includes an extensive range of 2D, 3D and animated plots. SADM simulations can be viewed using the three-dimensional interactive graphical tool, SIMDIS™.
Core SADM consists of the:
Front End which is used for configuring the SADM models and creating scenarios.
Back End which is used for running the SADM scenarios and generating data for the performance plots. The SADM Back End can execute independently from the Front End. This permits multiple copies of the backend to execute in parallel to support for larger trials.
The core SADM product can be customised through:
External sockets interfaces
We can also assist customers develop custom models of sensors, weapons and platforms from user-supplied data. We can provide bespoke training on the SADM product.
