Modeling and simulation (M&S) is critical to the success of the Department of Defense. It is utilized both as a predictive tool and as part of an iterative design process. Everyone can agree that M&S capabilities should be planned and resourced early, and that characterizing the capabilities and limitations of the M&S in relation to its specific intended use is essential. The problem many practitioners face is the ability to find M&S to support their requirements and a lack of incentives to encourage information sharing.
The Defense M&S Catalog is an OUSD (R&E) capability developed to facilitate discovery and reusability of M&S resources across the acquisition lifecycle. The Catalog provides an avenue for M&S organizations to make resources available for reuse, serves as a collection point for enterprise discovery, and actively seeks contribution of resources from M&S organizations.
This webinar will provide an overview of the current capabilities of the Defense M&S Catalog, a look “under the hood” of the Catalog into the technologies that power discovery and contribution capabilities, and a discussion of the evolution of the Catalog’s capabilities.
