Paper Abstract

The Joint Synthetic Battlespace for Research and Development (JSB-RD) program is performing research and development in the areas of Modeling and Simulation (M&S), advanced visualization and analysis, and Decision Support. The goal of this work is to create a robust environment for use in ongoing research efforts in areas including Information Fusion, Effects Based Operations, and Predictive Battlespace Awareness. Present day mission level simulations suffer from overly simplistic, inaccurate communication link models that significantly overestimate available in-theater communications, a vital enabler of Command, Control and Communications (C3). Predictions based from such models can, and generally do, substantially differ from those encountered under actual battle conditions. In an effort to improve the accuracy and reliability of mission level simulation predictions, JSB-RD is adding detailed military link models into their core environment, along with the necessary logic to properly address C3 effects within the synthetic world. This paper chronicles these JSB-RD efforts to date. This paper first presents a high level view of the JSB-RD project, followed by a detailed discussion of current efforts to enhance simulation predictions accuracy by integrating detailed military communications link models with existing military mission models.
