The Fusion Oriented Communications, Computers, Command, Control, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance C4ISR Utility Simulation FOCUS is an entity-level, event driven, stochastic C4ISR simulation. FOCUS simulates C4ISR processes, including sensor performance, tasking and collection the exploitation and processing of data from all sources, fusion of this information into tracks, and the communication of current predicted tracks to a visual simulation of the Common Operating Picture in a three-dimensional battle-space. Developed by the US Army Materiel Systems Analysis Activity, FOCUS is designed for the analysis of C4ISRs impact on tactical decision making in the Acquisition, Analysis, Intelligence, Test and Evaluation, and Experimentation Modeling and Simulation domains. The purpose of this report is to document the Verification and Validation V and V testing results on the algorithms, equations, and data for FOCUS.
