Abstract:

New computer simulation technology makes it possible to simulate naval warfare more effectively and on a more widespread basis. This technology is a very useful and economic way to enhance naval warfare training and to develop and evaluate tactics. This report addresses the management of simulation programs, based upon research into the applications of computer-assisted simulations and relevant directives on management. It is also based upon a unique conference with representatives of Navy activities involved in simulation matters to investigate management options. The Navy has long recognized the benefits of simulators in training. Advances in computer and simulation technology now promise to increase the sophistication and widen the use of simulations throughout the Navy. In addition, there is an emerging requirement for tactical simulation capabilities. The investment in these emerging uses of simulation is expected to be a large one however, the possibility of technical, programmatic, and logistics problems exists. This report discusses representative problem areas and identifies the directions in which the Navy must move to establish and carry out simulation programs which can achieve maximum benefit and avoid possible problems.
