The field of medical simulation originated in ancient times, where simple models of human patients were portrayed in clay and stone to represent clinical features of disease progression and its effects on humans. Historical data from the Middle Ages documents the use of animals for training surgical procedures. However, it was not until the 20th century that

Medical simulations are an integral part of the military health system, providing opportunities for skills development and performance assessment of both individual and team-level medical-related tasks. This Special Edition of the Journal “Launching Innovation through Medical Modeling and Simulation Technologies” will provide a glimpse into current efforts
The Defense M&S Catalog was established by Defense Modeling & Simulation Coordination Office to support the visibility component of the DoD data strategy and to provide an avenue for M&S organizations to make resources available for reuse. The Catalog is a collection point for enterprise discovery and actively seeks contribution of resources from
Sara Meyer, SimVentions, Inc. provides Helpdesk support for both the M&S Catalog and EMBR by responding to end-user inquiries, supporting outreach efforts and other demonstrations as needed.
The DoD has outlined a Strategic Vision and goals for DoD Modeling and Simulation (M&S). One of the goals is to "Promote the sharing of tools, data, and information across the DoD Enterprise," to enable reuse and interoperability of models, simulations, and associated data. Providing visibility into the Modeling & Simulation (M&S) resources across the DoD
Rachael Orzechowski is the Program Manager for SimVentions’ Modeling and Simulation Management Technology Group. SimVentions supports the development for the Enterprise Metacard Builder Resource Tool, referred to as EMBR or the EMBR Portal, and provides Helpdesk support for both the M&S Catalog and EMBR by responding to end-user inquiries, supporting
One of the goals of the DoD Net Centric vision is to provide visibility into the Modeling & Simulation (M&S) resources across the DoD enterprise. In order to manage and employ M&S capabilities effectively, senior leaders and managers must have visibility into the DoD's M&S portfolio; organizations supported by M&S need visibility into
Tammie McClellan is the Program Director for Information Systems Technology at UCF's Institute for Simulation and Training. She and her team oversee the development for the M&S Catalog search and contribute functions, and also operate and host the physical servers supporting the M&S Catalog and the EMBR Portal.
The new Defense Modeling & Simulation (M&S) Catalog, which achieved full operational capability in November 2014, represents a complete hardware, software, and conceptual upgrade from its predecessor. Based on operational and maintenance experience with the previous version of the Catalog, combined with considerable input from users, the Defense
Greetings, Welcome to the inaugural special modeling and simulation (M&S) edition of the Journal of Cyber Security & Information Systems, published by the Cyber Security & Information Systems Information Analysis Center (CSIAC). In lieu of continuing publication of the quarterly M&S Journal we have transitioned to a more visible venue in
