Extant and emerging tactical and strategic decision support systems include models and simulations. Modeling and Simulation (M&S) continue to be critical components of how DoD trains, plans to fight, and analyzes. Such systems help in joint training, technology assessment and force structuring.
To allow maximum utility, models and simulations should be constructed from reusable components interoperating through an open systems architecture. ArtisTech has played a leading role in the development of the standards and architecture of such systems for the DoD and the Intelligence Community.
Simulations for Planning
ArtisTech has significant experience, skills and technologies in the challenging domain of simulations constructed to facilitate battle planning. ArtisTech personnel have proven that, with proper simulation construction, simulations can be useful to a planning process. They can also be misleading. Working with the Army Research Laboratories, ArtisTech has designed a constraint satisfaction based wargame operations process to be used as part of ARL work with co-evolution planning research. A paper on this research is available here.
Modeling and Simulation Experience
DARPA Course of Action Analysis program
Leader of the SISO Reference Federation Object Model (RFOM of Ref. FOM) Study Group.
Advanced algorithms for DARPA, ARL, and The U.S. Army creating components to support planning, route finding, and search space reduction.
Participated in the design and development of the DMSO/STRICOM High Level
ARPA War Breaker System Engineering and Modeling (SEM) program, responsible for translating analytic and simulation requirements into simulation designs. The War Breaker program was an application of Advanced Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) to the analysis of war fighting C3I and weapon system performance in realistic simulated enemy scenarios. These simulations ranged from thousands of non-combatant ground vehicles to single MITL UAVs.
