Paper Abstract

This paper describes the experimental approach for understanding requirements needed to satisfy the objectives of the Joint Synthetic Battlespace (JSB) for Simulation Based Acquisition (SBA). The JSB (SBA) is an envisioned system comprised of constructive and virtual simulations and supportive tools and databases which will provide an analysis capability that supports the full acquisition life cycle of a weapon system. The challenge for developing a robust capability is to clearly understand the requirements of the JSB (SBA) that can support a broad number of different types of users, which includes not only government organizations but also industry, laboratories, and academia. A key element in understanding the JSB (SBA) requirements is to implement a series of prototypes prior to attempting to develop the actual JSB (SBA). The prototypes will not only provide insight into the JSB (SBA) requirements but will also allow us to understand whether existing technologies and legacy systems are adequate for attaining the envisioned JSB (SBA) objectives or whether a paradigm shift in our current approach to simulation developments today is needed.
