Abstract:

During the summer of 1997, the U.S. Army Simulation Training and Instrumentation Command STRICOM supported an analysis effort to study the potential architectural implications of the One Semi-Automated Forces OneSAF operational requirements. The OneSAF Operational Requirements Document ORD, developed by the governments OneSAF Integrated Concept Team, defines OneSAF as a composable, next generation CGF that can represent a full range of operations, systems, and control processes from individual combatant and platform to battalion level, with a variable level of fidelity that supports all models and simulation MS domains. The analysis effort concluded that an evolution approach using Modular Semi-Automated Forces ModSAF or the Close Combat Tactical Trainer Semi-Automated Forces CCTT SAF would not satisfy the variety of OneSAF uses nor would it be a maintainable or extensible solution. The analysis further concluded that a new OneSAF architecture should be developed that maximized the reuse of legacy SAF development experience, concepts, design, and code at every opportunity. However, to reduce the technical risks of the architecture development, research and a thorough domain analysis should be conducted prior to this development.
