Research Institution
It is imperative that we enable our training capabilities to evolve rapidly to support changing training needs. This, in turn, requires the capability to rapidly adjust and modify behavior models in an unprecedented manner. This capability is needed in all domains, including air, ground, surface, and subsurface, in both urban and more conventional warfare environments. The Toolkit for Rapid Behavior Modeling (TRBM) will overcome these limitations by enabling constructive behavior models to be developed rapidly and cost effectively. TRBM’s key innovation is its focus on empowering Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and warfighters to define and modify behavior models on their own. TRBM enables them to accelerate the model development process by executing a new behavior in an existing virtual environment and capturing it for use as a starting point in development of the behavior model. TRBM also uses a simulation-independent representation for its behavior models, which eliminates the need for software engineers or a software development lifecycle in the behavior development process. This will reduce the time, effort, and cost associated with developing new behavior models.
