Interoperability between Modeling and Simulation Applications and Army Command and Control (C2) Systems for Planning/Decision Support
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The utilization of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) technology to support the life cycle development, fielding, training and sustainment of military systems has demonstrated tremendous benefit as M&S applications have matured. The benefits ofinteroperability between M&S applications and Command and Control (C2) systems are becoming increasingly more evident as successful implementations are developed and used in Army experiments and exercises. As M&S technology improves, more successful usehas been applied across domains and the benefit of interoperability, particularly in time, cost and effectiveness, has been demonstrated. The purpose of the Phase I effort is to investigate approaches for defining interoperability standards between M&Sapplications and Army C2 systems for planning and decision support. This will focus on Army C2 systems and constructive force-on-force simulation systems that are used for analysis, training, and as scenario drivers (e.g., OneSAF, Janus, Eagle, WARSIM2000). This will be accomplished by developing an object model that captures the common data representation requirements to promote better interoperability between M&S applications and C2 systems. ACS will use an innovative approach for this problemthrough specification of the C2 representation from a purely data perspective that is independent of a particular simulation interoperability architecture.Will leverage significant investment in simulation technology to provide capabilities as part ofFuture Combat Systems (FCS) that will allow warfighters to
