Embedded simulation technologies have matured suitably to allow C4I systems to incorporate simulations within their design. Simulation based mission applications such as a course of action analysis application, or visual representations of complicated operational assessment models, can significantly improve the quality and timeliness of tactical decisions for military operations. Simulation based applications have the ability to process C4I data beyond human cognition, and display it in an intuitive and meaningful way for key tactical decision makers. This paper reports progress on the Navys Embedded Simulation Infrastructure ESI Program implementation and management of embedded models and simulations for C4I systems that are compliant with the Defense Information Infrastructure Common Operating Environment DII COE. The ESI Program provides a robust set of common reusable DII COE simulation services and object-oriented links between simulations and DII COE services and data bases. The development of two Global Command and Control System Maritime Mission Applications utilizing this technology are discussed the Planning Mission Editor and the Weapons of Mass Destruction Analysis Application.
