Members Participating in Steering Group

Steering Group Objectives
  • Craft an Alliance approach to achieve simulation
    interoperability and reuse
  • Develop a preliminary NATO MS Master Plan
  • Draft a roadmap to achieve prioritized NATO
    simulated environments
  • Recommend NATO policies regarding MS management
  • Present a final report to the RT Board, CNAD and
    MC

6
Steering Group Progress(1 of 2)
  • Assessment on MS Technology
  • Simulation technology is mature enough to justify
    a major NATO investment
  • Agreement on technical standards
  • Recommendation to adopt the High Level
    Architecture (HLA) and a set of data interchange
    standards to promote interoperability and reuse

7
Steering Group Progress(2 of 2)
  • Development of the MS Master Plan
  • Consensus on goals, baseline military
    requirements, MS assessment and key objectives
  • Agreement on key aspects of NATO MS policy
  • Recommendations on policy decisions required to
    implement the Master Plan contained in a Final
    Report

8
MS Master Plan(www.dmso.mil/NATO_MSMP/)
9
MS Master Plan Structure
  • Chapter 1 General Information
  • Purpose scope responsibilities key definitions
  • Chapter 2 NATO MS Goal
  • Vision statement guiding principles discussion
    baseline military requirements top priorities
  • Chapter 3 Current Assessment
  • 17 aspects summary
  • Chapter 4 MS Objectives
  • Five objectives, with associated issues and
    actions
  • Accomplished in four phases

10
NATO MS Vision
Modeling and simulation (MS) will provide
readily available, flexible and cost-effective
means to dramatically enhance NATO operations in
the application areas of defense planning,
operational planning, training and exercises,
support to operations and modernization. This
goal will be accomplished by a NATO-wide
co-operative effort that promotes
interoperability, reuse and affordability.
11
Summary of Assessment
  • "NATO has not yet begun to harness the full
    potential of MS to improve operations. Uses are
    rich and diverse, but a common Alliance strategy
    incorporating interoperability and reuse, a key
    to cost-effectiveness, does not exist."

Final Report(to be presented to CNAD 5 November)

14
Final Report Policy Recommendations(1 of 7)
  • Identifies several policy options
  • Shows relative advantages and disadvantages of
    each option
  • Incorporates Steering Group-preferred options
    into policy recommendations

15
Final ReportKey Policy Issues (2 of 7)
  • Key implementation decisions considered by the
    Steering Group
  • What level of common funding should be provided?
  • Where organizationally should the NATO simulation
    policy group (NSPG) be established?
  • Where organizationally should the Simulation
    Co-ordination Office (SCO) be established?

16
Policy RecommendationsCommon Funding
Recommendation(3 of 7)
  • Recommendation to the North Atlantic Council
  • 1.7 million ECU (2 million) per annum for
    common services and SCO operations
  • 2.6 million ECU (3 million) per annum for
    investment in core simulation/federation
    development

17
Policy RecommendationsNATO Simulation Policy
Group Overview (4 of 7)
  • A policy-level body to ensure the coherent
    management and co-ordination of MS activities
    across the Alliance
  • Key responsibilities
  • Oversee implementation of MS Master Plan
  • Allocate available funding to foster
    co-operative, high-priority efforts
  • Oversee SCO
  • Sponsor MS-related STANAGs
  • Meet periodically - probably on a semi-annual
    basis
  • Balanced representation from all NATO
    organizations with an interest in MS, to include
    simulation developers, technology developers,
    MNCs, and modernization activities

18
Policy RecommendationsNATO Simulation Policy
Group (NSPG) Recommendation (5 of 7)
  • Recommendation to the North Atlantic Council New
    body report to the CNAD

19
Policy RecommendationsSimulation Co-ordination
Office (SCO) Overview (6 of 7)
  • Working level organization that reports to and
    serves as secretariat to the NSPG
  • Responsibilities
  • Serve as day-to-day focal point to the MS
    community
  • Co-ordinate MS activities and execution of
    Master Plan
  • Provide or oversee provision of MS-related
    common services
  • Identify and facilitate opportunities for
    co-operative development
  • Co-ordinate MS-related standardization
    activities
  • Serve as the liaison with NATO organizations, the
    nations, technical agents and standards
    organizations on MS matters

20
Policy RecommendationsSimulation Co-ordination
Office (SCO) Recommendation (7 of 7)
  • Recommendation to the North Atlantic Council

SCO Stand-upDraft Implementation Plan
  • Jan-Jun 99 (NAC approval plus six months)
  • Establish office
  • Establish Help Desk
  • Monitor pathfinder activities
  • Conduct outreach to NATO staff and nations
  • Jul-Aug 99 (NAC approval plus seven to eight
    months)
  • Convene first NATO Simulation Policy Group
  • Sep-Oct 99 (NAC approval plus nine to ten months)
  • Hold first NATO MS Conference
  • Conduct first NATO MS Staff Officers Course

25
Proposed Pathfinder Projects
  • Phase 0 pathfinder effort/DiMuNDS 2000 conducted
    by the MNWG and supported by industry (next 18-24
    months)
  • focused on continuing and sustaining a level of
    technical understanding and knowledge of
    building, adapting and using distributed
    simulations with proof of principle type user
    exercises (education/awareness/technology
    transition)
  • supported mainly through existing NATO resources
    and national contributions
  • Follow-on pathfinder projects SCO will lead a
    distributed simulation development project to
    support a military exercise
  • Uses technical proficiencies developed during the
    preliminary effort
  • Uses common funding money and national
    contributions to address military needs

26
HLA STANAG
  • MS Master Plan gives SCO the responsibility to
    develop an HLA STANAG
  • SGMS recommends that Land Group 8 coordinate HLA
    STANAG until stand-up of the SCO
