Research Institution
The Modeling and Simulation (M&S) community is faced with increasing requirements to promote interoperability and reusability. To address this issue, DoD has defined the High-Level Architecture (HLA) as the standard to which models and simulations must conform. The HLA provides the infrastructure that allows conforming models and simulations to interact. However, neither the HLA or current simulation environments provide the high level coordination capability needed for the activities involved in creating and managing complex, synthetic, battlespace environments. In this SBIR, Modus Operandi (formerly Software Productivity Solutions) proposes to leverage our experience in distributed simulation and complex engineering environments to develop a Virtual Interactive Scenario Generation and Execution Environment (VISGEEN). VISGEEN supports the full simulation life-cycle of the synthetic battlespace environment, from scenario construction using integrated models and simulations, to run-time initialization, monitoring, control, and visualization of the participating simulations. In Phase I, Modus Operandi will integrate VISGEEN with existing M&S assets and use them to create a scenario for execution. VISGEEN will then initialize, manage, and visualize the scenario executing within the context of the HLA. This prototype will provide a solid foundation for Phase II full-scale VISGEEN implementation.
