Abstract : This report describes a modeling and simulation approach to experimentation that utilizes models and operators, performing their mission-oriented tasks, within a simulated version of their operational domains, in order to measure system performance under targeted key perturbations. This approach, called Synthetic Environment for Assessment (SEA), is a new way to use simulation for conducting trade-off analyses and for exploring very complex design spaces. SEA has the potential to progress systems from simply sustaining incremental improvements in favor of disruptive innovation exploring radically new ideas that change the rules of warfare and national defence. Use-cases from member Nations were provided to show how SEA could be used with significant benefit to its user groups. This report presents a conceptual model of SEA that can be used to identify the key issues of concern, and provides a detailed architecture for SEA that identifies resources, models and systems, input, outputs, and user communities resulting in the core technology areas within SEA and the unique technical barriers that need to be crossed to realize SEA in its fullest form.
