Paper Abstract

Significant advances are being made in the application of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) technologies to support Government initiatives for Simulation Based Acquisition (SBA) and Simulation, Test and Evaluation Process (STEP) in the Army transformation. This paper describes a collaborative approach to Family of Systems (FoS) M&S in use on the FOSSIM program to evaluate critical Theater Air and Missile Defense (TAMD) integration and interoperability issues and to explore opportunities for advanced technology exploitation. This paper provides an overview of the FOSSIM concept and describes the collaborative development and utilization methodology. Key topics discussed include Systems Engineering and Design, Model Engineering and Development, Systems Analysis, and Configuration Management (CM). The paper concludes by summarizing the FOSSIM simulation environment and modeling capabilities.
