NATO - AMSP-01(B)

Nato Modelling and Simulation Standards Profile

inactive
Organization: NATO
Publication Date: 26 January 2012
Status: inactive
Page Count: 125
scope:

AMSP-01 maintains information on M&S standards and recommended practices relevant to achieving interoperability and re-use of components, data, models or best practices. The AMSP-01 provides recommendations that can be used as guidance in the selection and use of M&S standards for NATO and national activities, e.g. coalition training and experimentation.

Standards are classified in the following categories:

a. M&S methodology, architecture and processes with sub-categories:

1. Architecture Frameworks;

2. Systems Engineering processes;

3. Verification and Validation;

b. Conceptual Modelling and Scenarios;

c. M&S Interoperability ;

d. Information Exchange Data Model;

e. Software Engineering;

f. Representation of natural and human-made environment with sub-categories:

1. General;

2. Data sources and formats;

3. Imagery, 3D Models;

4. Interchange of environmental data;

5. Production processes;

6. Visualization;

g. Simulation Analysis and Evaluation;

h. M&S Miscellaneous.

In terms of maturity, standards and guidance documents are characterised as either 'obsolete', 'aging', 'current', or 'emerging' as appropriate. These categories are defined as follows:

a.'Obsolete' standards are identified as those which are not being maintained and have been superseded. Users should plan replacement activities. For new projects these standards should not be applied.

b. 'Aging' standards are identified as those which are mature and in wide use, but may have limited capability. In these cases the use of 'current' or 'emerging' standards should be considered in the context of future developments.

c. 'Current' standards are identified as those which are in use and are currently being maintained and developed. For new projects these standards should be applied.

d. 'Emerging' standards are identified as those which are being developed (e.g. to meet gaps in capability), which are not yet fully formalised or not yet widely accepted. For new projects these standards should be considered.

PURPOSE

The primary purpose of the Allied Modelling and Simulation Publication AMSP-01, the NATO Modelling and Simulation Standards Profile, is to provide guidance on the selection and use of Modelling and Simulation (M&S) standards to promote interoperability. The document is intended to address and support in particular the following objective of the NATO M&S Master Plan (see reference 1.1.3.1).

a. Establish a Common Technical Framework to Foster Interoperability and Reuse.

A secondary purpose of AMSP-01 is to inform NATO M&S stakeholders on new /emerging standards and also on commercial or government-owned products that are in large use and sometimes improperly called "standards": this concerns "de facto" standards, products, methodologies, processes, etc. that are not "official standards", but that are widely used within industry and nations and could be relevant for NATO M&S activities. This secondary purpose explains the large number of products that are mentioned and described in this document, even if they are not all "official standards" as defined in section 2.1.

The standards that have been selected by NATO M&S Group (NMSG) experts to be included in the Profile are considered to further both purposes of AMSP-01 - support interoperability and provide information. The standards profile is aimed specifically at NATO member nations and partner nations, as well as national and NATO organisations, which have requirements to effectively use M&S in support of NATO, coalition and national requirements.

The official standards and other products included in the Profile are either selected for information purposes or recommended by the NMSG to promote M&S interoperability. Their selection is the result of a formal selection process (see paragraph 2.6.) by NATO and national M&S experts. Standards and products included in the Profile are not formally mandated by NATO unless they are supported by a specific NATO Standardisation Agreement (STANAG).
