Modelling and Simulation MS is a key enabler for the delivery of capabilities to NATO and Nations in the domains of training, analysis and decision-making. MS solutions have to be integrated seamlessly in future computer information systems capabilities to ensure increased efficiency, affordability, interoperability and reusability. Technical developments in the area of Service-Oriented Architectures SOAs may offer opportunities for providing MS solutions that address current NATO critical shortfalls. The application of a services model to Modelling and Simulation, henceforth called Modelling and Simulation as a Service MSaaS, promises to greatly reduce the barriers of cost and accessibility and to result in greater utility of MS throughout NATO and the Nations. In response to a request by Nations and ACT to investigate a NATO MSaaS technical concept, and to investigate a supporting Reference SOA, MSG-131 developed a set of conclusions and recommendations on MSaaS. These conclusions and recommendations along with a survey of the experiences of the Member Nations regarding the use of cloud solutions and service-oriented approaches within the MS domain are included in this report.
