The modeling and simulation MS knowledge base does not completely describe or document the validation of individual model behaviors for rapid searching, implementation, and distribution to the MS community. This results in a MS development environment where the usage of potentially flawed or inaccurate behaviors, vignettes and models is possible. In FY 2014 the Army Research Lab ARL and TRAC WSMR sponsored TRAC MTRY to create a methodology for the validation and documentation of MS behaviors. The resulting methodology was a validation process that would define, describe and characterize behaviors and provide a validation score that addressed the realism of that behavior. This was accomplished with a validation meta-model and a supplementary scoring model that was composed of four criteria conceptual validation, operational validation, subject matter expert and documentation.
