Newly emerging, latest aspects of war have made a lot of nations to accelerate in developing future weapon systems. However, there are only a handful of methods to analyze and estimate their effectiveness. Conventional simulation systems are too ineffective and limited in testing the unique nature of future weapon systems. Instead, a more flexible PLAF (Product Line Architecture Framework) based simulation is required to take into account new characteristics of these weapon systems. We therefore propose a new methodology for effectiveness analysis of future weapon system using the newest simulation system, OneSAF, and seek reliability of this method by analyzing the results for our test simulation.
