The Joint Synthetic Battlespace for Research and Development JSB-RD is a distributed simulation environment that is intended to facilitate research into both advanced Air Force command and control concepts and simulation science. The JSB-RD environment includes a computer generated forces CGF system, the JSB-RD Viewer, which provides theater- level situation awareness and mission status information in multiple formats, weather and environment simulations, a collection of sensor simulations, and a gateways to C4lSR systems. A variety of AFRLIF programs require a flexible, multi-purpose, modeling and simulation environment in order to represent various aspects of the joint battlespace, and to stimulate and react to prototype C4lSR systems and components. The JSB-RD system forms the starting point for such an environment. This effort focused on Visualization, System Integration and Modeling and Simulation Facility Planning. NG developed improvements and enhancements to the existing JSB-RD Viewer application to allow it to more effectively be used to evaluate and demonstrate advanced visualization and GUI techniques for theater-level situation awareness, integrated the enhanced JSB-RD Viewer application with the other major components of the JSB-RD federation, developed test and demonstration scenarios, and assessed how the existing JSB-RD system, and its individual components, could be used as the starting point for the development of a more complete 041 SR modeling and simulation environment.
