Abstract : This Manual is issued under the authority of DoD Directive 5000.59, "DoD Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Management," January 4, 1994. Its purpose is to prescribe a uniform glossary of modeling and simulation (M&S) terminology for use throughout the Department of Defense. In addition to the main glossary of terms, this Manual includes a list of M&S-related abbreviations, acronyms, and initials commonly used within the Department of Defense. This Manual is effective immediately and is mandatory for use by all of the DoD Components. However, it is not a substitute for the Department of Defense Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms (JOINT PUB 1-02), which the Secretary of Defense has directed to be used throughout the Department of Defense.
