The Bilateral Enterprise Analysis Model (BEAM) is a defense enterprise-level simulation capable of exploring future technologies, strategies, force structures and the impacts of changing access to infrastructure and basing decisions all within the context of intelligent and adaptive adversaries.
Today’s most advanced warfighting models are typically locked into a specific scenario simulating a static strategy, infrastructure and adversary behaviors. Revision to these elements of a scenario has traditionally been very time-consuming, impacting the ability to provide responsive analytic support. BEAM represents a revolutionary approach to more quickly answer these types of enterprise-level questions.
BEAM is capable of rapidly evaluating force structure and strategy across domains and scenarios. BEAM is a two-sided model and allocates forces to missions whose outcomes are stored from mission-level data. It operates on a standard data-structure for all types of missions, giving flexibility for insertion of new capabilities.
