Greetings, Welcome to this 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). This edition focuses on wargaming, a key cylinder of the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) innovative engine. The Department
Topic: Modeling & Simulation
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
The use of live field testing for new data links, protocols, waveforms, radios, and algorithms is the traditional best-practice. With that said, the cost, time, effort and complexity involved in large-scale field tests often makes these tests unaffordable to many levels of testers. A glaring example is the gap that exists between basic research algorithm
This special edition of the CSIAC Journal focuses on Modeling & Simulation. In coordination with the Defense Modeling & Simulation Coordination Office, the current state of M&S across the US Defense Community is presented to our readers to raise awareness and to encourage interest. We hope you enjoy it.
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 to integrate with other simulations. This desire for a short lead time for
Let’s discuss what DOD Modeling & Simulation (M&S) can learn about education from the commercial gaming world. There are occasions when we in DOD look at the commercial gaming industry as if we’re kids with our faces pressed against a candy store’s window. In many instances, fundamental differences between DOD and the private sector prevent us
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
Modeling and Simulation (M&S) capabilities enhance the ability of the Department of Defense to meet strategic and operational challenges in a complex and fiscally constrained environment. The Army recognized the importance of M&S and developed a robust framework and governance structure to provide technology and capabilities to leaders and soldiers.
In this article, I summarize Air Force Models and Simulations (M&S) policy initiatives and M&S enhancements for decision support analytics for warfighters and acquisitions. The policy initiatives include implementing an M&S governance structure, instantiating a study governance oversight, and evaluating the analytic capability across the Air
