Abstract
Modeling and simulation (M&S) is profoundly affecting the way the Army develops, acquires, tests, and fields new technologies for the future battlefield. While M&S has made a significant impact on Army digitization initiatives to date, fully realizing its benefits in the research, development, and acquisition (RDA); advanced concepts requirements (ACR); and training, exercises, and military operations (TEMO) domains for C4I systems will require significant improvements in M&S tools and practices. The Army Enterprise Implementation Plan, Task 9 Action Plan, specifies the use of Department of Defense (DoD)-compliant tools and methodologies--including the High-Level Architecture (HLA)--to oversee the prioritization and integration of C4I models to facilitate trade-off analysis and validation of the Operational, Technical, and Systems Architectures. The overarching objective of the proposed Phase I work effort is to develop a plan to transition current Army C41 M&S products and tools to an objective M&S environment that meets the criteria established by the Army Enterprise Strategy Task 9 M&S Subgroup. HLA lends itself well to meeting the requirements of the Objective C4I M&S environment. The HLA goal is to meet the wide range of functional M&S applications while facilitating interoperability among simulations and reusability of simulations and their components. BENEFITS: The proposed R&D offers follow-on potential applications to the DoD and commercial telecommunications and entertainment industries. Commercialization of the R&D will be achieved through presentation of documented results, publication of technical papers and participation at trade shows, symposia, and other technical forums.
