Modelling and Simulation Group 145: Operationalization of Standardized C2-Simulation Interoperability
The interoperation between Command and Control (C2) systems and simulation systems is a common theme in the transformation of modern military forces. This is required to support the military enterprise in the execution of business activities and mission threads such as forces readiness, decision support and acquisition. This implies the ability to seamlessly integrate C2 and simulation systems and to provide the means for a meaningful and unambiguous information exchange. This applies to systems of systems functioning toward a common goal at different levels:1) Within services; 2) Across services; (i.e., joint) and 3) Across Nations in a multi-national or coalition context. In 2016, the NATO Research and Technology Organization started the three-year Modelling and Simulation Task Group Operationalization of Standardized C2-Simulation Interoperability to further the development of the C2 to Simulation interoperability standards developed by SISO with a view to recommending them for adoption by NATO as a STANAG. This final report documents the completed work of this Task Group, designated MSG-145. It includes the continued progress made to demonstrate the utility of C2-Simulation interoperability. This report draws on the knowledge of C2-Simulation experts to merge current standards towards a unified, more manageable and easier to deploy C2SIM interoperability suitable to be recommended for adoption as a NATO standard.
