The Architecture of CAPE
Kenneth P. Kuskey, The MITRE Corporation
Susan K. Parker, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
MITRE is developing a methodology for analyzing the performance and
cost of future national command-control and information systems, emphasizing
so-called sensor to shooter systems. The methodology is named CAPE,
which stands for C4ISR analytic performance evaluation. The CAPE methodology
supports MITRE in its role as a systems engineer for national C4ISR
CAPE involves the extensive use of mathematical models and
computers to estimate system performance and cost. Though
many MITRE project briefings and reports describe the results of
CAPE modeling, heretofore MITRE has not provided general
documentation of how its staff constructs and uses mathematical
models in applying the CAPE methodology.
