Paper Abstract

A 1995 vision statement for Air Force Modeling and Simulation (M&S) highlighted the need for a Joint Synthetic Battlespace (JSB); an environment wherein warfighters could train and exercise on their real-world equipment while immersed in a realistic contingency or wartime environment. This paper describes our efforts to develop a Joint Synthetic Battlespace for Research and Development (JSB-RD), which will provide a realistic environment within which technologies being developed at AFRL's Information Directorate can be analyzed and tested. Where possible, this environment will attach to operational systems in order to provide military realism that will ultimately improve and shorten the tech transition process. This reconfigurable testbed will provide scalability and evolve over time building upon previous federations, attaching to other federations, while incorporating lessons learned along the way.
