Subject: SISO signs MoA with NTSA at I/ITSEC
In a brief ceremony held during I/ITSEC, representatives of the
National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA) and the
Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) signed a
Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) that substantially solidifies and
strengthens the relationship between the two organizations.
The agreement commits NTSA and SISO to a closer and more
coordinated relationship as they work together for the overall
betterment of the simulation profession.
Present at the signing ceremony were: Dr Katherine Morse,
Chair, Executive Committee, SISO; RADM Frederick L. Lewis, USN
(Ret), President, NTSA; and Stephen Swenson, President, SISO.
"The modeling and simulation industry plays a vital role in our
nation's defense and economy," said Swenson. "NTSA is at the
forefront of defense training and education and a leading advocate for
the use of modeling and simulation in that community. SISO is all
about developing the modeling and simulation standards necessary
to carry out the training mission. The MoA between NTSA and SISO
strengthens the M&S industry by formalizing the relationship
between these great organizations and ever ensuring strong
cooperation going forward."
Lewis noted the close relationship that has already existed
between NTSA and SISO, and added that "going forward, this
agreement enhances and solidifies what has always been a positive
and productive relationship. NTSA is committed to supporting
SISO's mission and goals. Both organizations are looking forward
to working together more closely in the future."
Dr. Morse added, "SISO welcomes closer cooperation with NTSA
as it provides us greater opportunities to highlight the value of
SISO's standards directly to the training community that already
significantly benefits from the application of our standards."
