This project will pursue the development of multimodelling capability within the model based development environment. In this context, the multimodelling programme will contribute towards a semantically-aware environment that will support the development of a generic combat system implementation, needed for combat system performance analysis. The environment will enforce semantic correctness in inter-model data exchange as well as enhance the visualisation of data flow towards a better understanding of inter-model coupling.

The project will continue the research initiated in prior research agreements utilising specialised knowledge bases and skill sets in the SEM domain, while extending into complementary fields. As with previous collaborative research, this project will once again focus on building capabilities associated with providing insight into integration and performance early in the development cycle of distributed real-time and embedded systems, specifically maritime combat systems. The research will also examine, and where possible develop, new software development philosophies and techniques to complement the SEM evaluation capabilities, and will be utilising the combat system computing environment setup at the University of Adelaide.
