IV.G.08. Advanced Command, Control, and Communications (C3) Modeling and Simulation. Objective is to provide modeling and simulation (M&S) tools that accurately represent dissemination, processing, and transmission of information generated and collected on the battlefield. Approach includes developing systems performance models (SPMs) to support the introduction of emerging high-speed information transport technologies, including Near-Term Digital Radio (NTDR), asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switching, personal communications systems (PCS), High-Capacity Trunk Radio (HCTR), and Radio Access Point (RAP); developing distributed interactive simulations focused on supporting the development of integrated, survivable, and adaptive information networks; and adopting the High Level Architecture (HLA) to develop a Common Modeling Environment (CME) capable of supporting all M&S domains. By FY98, provide integrated division/corps SPM, which includes all Battlefield Information Transmission System (BITS) elements. By FY99, provide virtual communications systems models that support man-in-the-loop evaluation and training for Force XXI. By FY00, transition existing virtual and systems performance models to CME to facilitate model enhancements for BITS acquisition/fielding and to realize cost/benefit ratio improvements in use of M&S. By FY01, complete transition to CME and demonstrate next-generation tools for initialization, management, and data reduction that will reduce time required to setup, execute, and analyze results of simulations and user-interface technology that supports use by the Warfighter for mission planning/training. S&TCD Funded, C2SID Executed.
Supports: Digital Battlefield Communications (DBC) and Battlespace Command and Control (BC2) Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD) programs and Battlefield Information Transmission System (BITS).
