What is the status of a Joint Munitions Effectiveness Manual (JMEM)-like capability for directed-energy effects to satellites?

A DSIAC subject matter expert (SME) participated in a phone conversation to describe JMEM and the state of modeling and simulation to develop a comparable tool for directed-energy effects to satellites. The DSIAC SME identified SMEs within the U.S. Air Force who can provide more detail on the status of efforts incorporating space-based systems into JMEM and provided a primer to JMEM for further reading.
