Mission Aware MBSE Meta-Model

Mission Aware MBSE Meta-Model

June 7, 2022 from 2:00 pm to 2:45 pm

Speaker: Tim Sherburne, Virginia Tech

This presentation will overview the Mission Aware (MA) meta-model (https://www.mission-aware.net) which is an extension of Vitech’s GENESYS MBSE meta-model that incorporates aspects of the MIT Systems Theoretic Process Analysis for safety and security, and Virginia Tech’s research in Cyber Resilient Systems Engineering. A complimentary Cyber Security Requirements Methodology (CSRM) will be presented and used to organize the discussion of the MA meta-model.

A current research project within the Systems Engineering Research Center (https://sercuarc.org) is to create a Digital Engineering (DE) Digital Textbook (https://github.com/tsherburne/de-textbook) in support of a Secure Cyber-Resilient Engineering (SCRE) credential for the Defense Acquisition University (https://www.dau.edu) which is based on the MA Meta-Model and Methodologies.
