Most government and commercial engineering organizations are under pressure to reduce system development time and costs while increasing overall quality. Modus Operandi proposes to combine the most promising new technologies for remote collaboration, Virtual Reality Prototyping, and tool integration into an innovative environment with significant benefits for complex engineering efforts. The Wide area Virtual-Prototyping Environment, or WAVE, will allow teams of geographically separated engineers to quickly prototype and evaluate potential system designs using an integrated set of remote collaboration, Virtual Reality, simulation, HLA, design, analysis, browsing, impact analysis and management tools. WAVE will allow engineers to work faster, collaborate more effectively, and produce better systems. To reduce the cost and risk in building WAVE, Modus Operandi will use COTS, GOTS, and legacy tools and build on open industry standards. Catalyst, a mature engineering environment, is the culmination of Modus Operandi¿s ten years of experience in building environments and will provide the foundation for WAVE. To this foundation will be added robust modeling tools from MultiGen, Inc. and Coryphaeus Software. The resulting system will provide important benefits to large Navy programs, such as SC21, CVX, LPD-17, and NSSN. A leading engineering tools vendor has already expressed interest in commercializing WAVE.
