A computational model of agent-environment interaction is presented that has been inspired by the theory of affordances from ecological psychology. The model is developed in the context of agent-environment interaction in multi-agent simulation in a virtual environment. The research is motivated by multi-agent simulation of military operations, where the agents represent cognitive models of military operators. A mechanism for evaluating the model is provided through a number of design and implementation interpretations in two distinct large scale multi-agent simulation systems.
