"Simulation and Modeling for Acquisition Requirements and Training (SMART) is the U.S. Army's implementation of the DoD Simulation Based Acquisition (SBA) initiative. SMART's goal is to significantly reduce the time required to develop Future Combat Systems(FCSs) from over 20 years to about 8 years through extensive use of M&S to rapidly analyze design changes. Increasingly, composite materials are replacing metals in the manufacture of FSC vehicle structures. Because composite materials affect thepropagation and scattering of electromagnetic energy differently than metals, there is a growing need to rapidly analyze electromagnetic interactions between composite vehicle structures and vehicular mounted antennas. In order to support acquisitionobjectives, there is a need to improve and integrate Computational Electromagnetic (CEM) M&S tools.Spectra Research, Inc. (S*R) and Riverside Research Institute (RRI) propose to develop an intelligent CEM Analysis Assistant (CEMAA) that integrates/configures CEM codes and guides the user through a CEM analysis. Our approach will leverage the Army'sdevelopment of a M&S integration architecture, called the Army Research and Development Center (RDEC) Collaborative Biome (CB), to integrate the Army's M&S resources/design analysis. This will make it much easier to integrate new CEM tools developed by DoDand industry into the Army's CEM analysis. Application of the evolving CB technology will integrate
