Christopher McGroarty (formerly Gaughan) is the Chief Engineer for Advanced Simulation and Deputy Technology Program Manager of the Modeling Architecture for Technology, Research and Experimentation (MATREX) program at the United States Army esearch Laboratory, Human Research and Engineering Directorate, Simulation and Training Technology Center (ARL HRED STTC). His research interests include distributed simulation, novel computing architectures, innovative methods for user-simulation interaction, methodologies for making simulation more accessible by non-simulation experts, service oriented architectures and future simulation frameworks. He manages and leads a variety of research efforts that mature, integrate and demonstrate these technologies in a relevant Army and Department of Defense context. He received his Master of Science and Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Modeling and Simulation (M&S) users who require complex M&S typically do not have a long lifecycle for an experiment, analysis initiative or simulation-based event. To reduce cost, they need to use well-established simulation architectures and robust models that are easy… Read More
