What are Systems of Systems? Why are we interested in them? What about them vex us? These topics will be addressed in this overview talk along with emphasis on the analysis of vulnerabilities in SoS Architectures. Our particular work targets advancements in the modeling and analysis of System of Systems (SoS), in particular to support systems engineering activities associated with architecture design, evolution, and operational assessment. We analyze dynamic impacts of interdependencies and uncertainties inherent in SoS. We envision an analytic workbench (populated by a variety of analytical tools from several sources) that makes these analysis capabilities accessible to “SoS System Engineers” in tackling real SoS problems like Air Transportation and Ballistic Missile Defense.
