2005 Fall Simulation Interoperability Workshop
sponsored by the
Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization
Holiday Inn, International Drive, Orlando,
18-23 September 2005


Use of Game Technology in Military Modeling and Simulation Defense
departments worldwide
are turning to game technologies such as scenario-based game engines
and on-line massive
multi-player role-playing game servers as one way of providing
low-cost, on demand,
deployable tactical training to the warfighter. In addition, game and
technologies such as crowd behavior modeling are being embedded into
traditional military
trainers. While defense departments value and mandate standards in
military programs, does
the game industry have the commitment, incentive, and experience to
apply simulation
standards to ensure validity of training and to enable
communications, commonality, and
reuse between different vendors' games? Games and game technologies
are proliferating in
military training. Are they reusable, interoperable, and
maintainable? If not, should they
be? Must the military community create its game technologies from a
blank sheet? Or can we
devise economically efficient methods to reuse commercial games
without falling victim to
common problems such as how to gain access to proprietary code and
how to interpret the
game results for analytic purposes?
