Abstract:

M and S as a Service MSaaS is a concept that combines service orientation and the provision of M and S applications via the as-a-service model of cloud computing to enable more composable simulation environments that can be deployed and executed on-demand. NATO MSG-136 investigated the concept of MSaaS and provided technical and organizational foundations to establish the Allied Framework for M and S as a Service within NATO and partner nations. The Allied Framework for M and S as a Service is the common approach of NATO and nations towards implementing MSaaS and is defined by the Operational Concept Document, Technical Reference Architecture, and MSaaS Governance Policies. This document provides the Allied Framework for Modelling and Simulation as a Service MSaaS Technical Reference Architecture. The aim of this document is to provide technical guidelines, recommended standards, architecture building blocks and architecture patterns that should be considered in realizing MSaaS capabilities. The Technical Reference Architecture uses the NATO C3 Classification Taxonomy as a tool for describing capability concepts and as a repository for architecture building blocks and patterns.
