An analysis of a representative cross section of Naval simulationstimulation training systems highlighted that the battle-spaces represented in these systems differ in both content and resolution. These differences currently preclude Naval training systems from operating together in a meaningful way. In response, the Navy Modeling and Simulation Office NAVMSMO together with NAVSEA PMS430 has sponsored the development of a Naval Training Meta-Federation Object Model FOM NTMF. The NTMF is being developed by inputs from the Navy MS trainer experts in response to the DoD MS vision of interoperability and consistency. The NTMF is focused on providing the mechanism to deliver a synthetic battlespace representation that is interoperable and consistent for use by Navy and Marine Corps trainers. The NTMF will contribute to the DoD vision through interaction and communication between participating simulationsstimulations, and it will be the basis for the creation of a common synthetic battle-space representation. This paper will begin with an overview of the NTMF. Next we will discuss recent developments within the Marine Air Ground Task Force MAGTF FOM. Lastly, we will analyze the MAGTF FOM requirements and their impact to the development of the NTMF, as well as additional topics for inclusion within the NTMF.
