During the course of over a decade, the Military Operations Research Society MORS has sponsored a sequence of workshops on the subject of simulation technology. The broad objectives of these workshops were to identify and prioritize the needs of the users of military modeling and simulation MS, assess the probable evolution of MS technology, and to identify potential user shortfalls and opportunities to ameliorate them. This paper summarizes the major findings and recommendations of the last of these workshops, Simulation Technology SIMTECH 2007. It focuses on the MS needs for three major user groups analysts, acquirers of systems, and educators and trainers. For each of these user groups, a vision is articulated and recommendations are posed to realize those visions. The paper concludes with a brief look at promising new MS initiatives in each of these functional areas as well as major residual issues that confront the MS community.
