ABSTRACT: To make optimal use of current and future investment in simulation and gaming technology, integration of independent applications must be accomplished while minimizing time and resource demands. The proposed research and development will remove barriers to successful data sharing between games and military simulations using an extensible networked gateway approach. With effective tools and an understanding of the relationship between gaming and simulation technologies, options for training solutions will be expanded without significant investment in additional resources. BENEFIT: TSE"s commercialization strategy will take advantage of the narrowing gap between gaming and military simulation technologies. With a clear path toward integration with military simulations, games are able to serve dual purposes as entertainment and effective training, analysis, or testing tools. This broadening of the market and expansion of value will create opportunities not only in game development, but in development tools and technical services for both private and government customers.
