The Defense Modeling and Simulation Coordination Office (DMSCO) is the Department’s focal point for promoting the effective and efficient use of modeling and simulation (M&S) as a tool to support the full range and scope of DoD operations and activities.  DMSCO addresses the enduring M&S interoperability and reuse needs of the Department through policy, standards, technology, and collaboration.  It also identifies and assesses technology for application to Defense M&S.

Important roles for DMSCO are to work with the DoD M&S Community to advise DoD and R&E leaders on (1) developing policy, standards, and strategic goals that guide the Department’s M&S use, research and development, and investments in current and future capabilities; (2) promoting interoperability of M&S tools when required for joint and coalition operations, and cost-effective reuse of existing already-paid-for data and software when feasible; and (3) identifying gaps in M&S capabilities and impediments to interoperability and reuse, and developing courses of action to solve those problems.

DoD COMMUNITIES

(CAC Required)

M&S COI

Cyber M&S Technical Working Group (CyMSTWG)

  • Primary Purpose

    Increasing awareness of DoD Cyber M&S activities and improving visibility, discovery, interoperability and reuse of Cyber M&S activities/investments across DoD by providing a forum to:

      • Discuss Cyber M&S challenges
      • Identify reuse opportunities
      • Provide input to S&T in Cyber M&S area
      • Provide input for DoD M&S Enterprise activities that can support Cyber
        M&S

  • Membership

    Subject matter experts and participants from other DoD COIs, Government, Industry, Academia, and International Partners

M&S COI

Architecture Working Group (AWG)

  • Primary Purpose

    The M&S COI Architecture Working Group (AWG) is formed to investigate
    Department Architecture development efforts to determine potential impact(s) to M&S equities and recommend tasks necessary to align M&S architecture activities to Department capabilities.


  • Membership

    Subject matter experts and participants from other DoD COIs,
    Government, Industry, Academia, and International Partners

Additional information about M&S in the DoD can be found at the DMSCO website www.msco.mil.

RESOURCES

  • DoD M&S Policies can be found at Policy Guidance.


  • DMSCO provides policy, standards, and best practices for Verification, Validation, and Accreditation (VV&A) of Defense M&S.


  • The DoD Modeling and Simulation Glossary provides uniform M&S terminology for use by the DoD M&S Community. The glossary also serves as an authoritative source for DoD users to communicate M&S information using the same terms and acronyms.


    The M&S Guidebook is a compendium of short self-contained articles capturing key concepts, initiatives and programs


  • An annual M&S journal is published through a collaborative effort between the Cyber Security & Information Systems Information Analysis Center (CSIAC) and the Defense Modeling and Simulation Coordination Office (DMSCO).


  • DoD M&S Journals were originally published under the auspices of DMSCO. Historic copies can be found at MS Journals.

CAC-ENABLED SITES

EMBR Portal

The DoD Enterprise Metacard Builder Resource (EMBR) Portal is a web-based, government off-the-shelf (GOTS) tool that enables users to develop and manage DoD-standard metadata describing modeling and simulation (M&S) assets.

M&S Catalog

The Defense M&S Catalog is a web-based search capability, which provides a "card catalog" level of detail about M&S tools, data, and services. Data owners may use the Enterprise Metacard Builder Resource (EMBR) Portal to create metacards and publish them to the M&S Catalog.
