Modeling and Simulation

Modeling and Simulation

Torch manages, develops, and validates a variety of simulations and simulation tools, including emulators and simulators, to facilitate a complete understanding of the operational system environment. We develop simulations based on complex mathematical and phenomenology models for a variety of problem domains including the following: platform; interceptor; threat sensor; and Command, Control, Communications and Computers (C4). Torch incorporates these complex models into larger system simulations for analysis of system-wide problems in a variety of areas such as integrated air and missile defense, ballistic missile defense sensor and weapon performance, and integrated UAS weapon system performance. Our specific capabilities in this area include the following:

High Fidelity 6-DOF

Physics-based modeling of interceptors, aviation platforms and threats, including detailed models of aerodynamics, guidance and control systems, navigation components, sensors and data links.


Modeling and simulation representations to support all-digital elements of system-level and component HWIL facilities including platform, interceptor, weapon control, battle management, and threat.

Virtual Engagement

High-fidelity interceptor models integrated with tactical systems to support live testing with actual targets, sensors, and weapon control components.

Threat Engineering

Model representations of adversary missiles, aircraft, drones and towed targets, including trajectories, signatures and lethality/vulnerability.

Performance Analysis & System Effectiveness

Operational, battle space, and detailed engagement analysis using tools developed to support efficient production, collection, and analysis of performance data.

Verification & Validation

Refinement and validation of simulations utilizing test data that includes truth data from data collections (e.g., flight tests, ground tests, HWIL tests, etc.).
