Reusing Simulation Models for Weapons Effectiveness Analysis

Kangsun Lee, Taesup Kim

Abstract

Simulation-based weapons effectiveness analysis involves complex modeling tasks to represent weapons, natural environment and operational environment. An integrated M&S (Modeling and Simulation) environment provides useful tools and services to partly automate the modeling tasks. Along with the M&S environment, a model repository can help model developers to ease the required tasks by sharing predefined and already validated models, generated from inside and outside the M&S environment. In this paper, we introduce our M&S environment, OpenSIM (Open Simulation Engine for Interoperable Models), and illustrate how the model repository in OpenSIM can enable users to reuse models for weapons effectiveness analysis. OpenSIM manages weapon ontology and thesaurus dictionaries to assess structural and contextual similarity between weapon models. We present semantic information and similarity measures of OpenSIM and illustrate how the model repository of OpenSIM helps users locate reusable weapon models.
