Abstract:

The Fort Future Tools research program is building installation modeling and simulation capabilities that will give decisionmakers the ability to virtually test potential solutions to meeting future requirements. This will greatly enhance the Armys ability to transform its installations in the tight timeframe required to support our emerging forces. Much as field commanders gain a superior advantage by visualizing the battle space, installation planners will be able to make better strategic decisions by visualizing results of many different scenarios. The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC is conducting research and development in support of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management OACSIM. The Fort Future tools will create a system of systems that unites existing and new computer models to form a virtual installation. Building on data available from the Standard Army Management Information Systems STAMIS that provide a snapshot of the present, the Fort Future tools will use modeling and simulation to help decisionmakers explore potential consequences of their decisions.
