Tyche is an application that was developed by the Maritime Operational Research Team in 2004. It is a stochastic force structure model that simulates the demand placed on future maritime fleets. After creating a realistic set of missions, fleets and fleet assets are scheduled to respond to the given circumstances. However, Tyche simulations take time to set up and can be computationally quite expensive. To improve both speed and the user's ability to administer and maintain a queue of simulations, a new Tyche Simulation Engine (Tyche SE) module has been derived from the existing Tyche application. By sharing the same code base while restructuring the architecture, a background process version of Tyche (Tyche SE) is used solely for the purpose of running automated simulations through the Tyche simulation management tool dashboard. To maintain backwards compatibility and debugging functions, simulations can still be run from the Tyche graphical user interface (GUI). The GUI now includes several new features and code improvements, including compiled help files.
