Title: A Knowledge Sharing Framework for Homeland Security Modeling and Simulation
Published: December 10, 2010
Abstract: Modeling and simulation (M&S) tools and capabilities can enable understanding of the complex nature of systems in various homeland security domains. A coordinated effort across government, industry, and academia would advance capabilities in this important area. Initiating such an effort requires establishing a common understanding or framework that shares the current knowledge in the area including scope, needs and requirements, current resources and capabilities, best practices, research and development issues, available and needed standards, implementations issues, and terminology. The framework should include prioritized research challenges that need to be addressed. Stakeholder participation is essential in developing and documenting this type of framework. This paper describes an outline for a knowledge sharing framework that could be developed and maintained by the community interested in homeland security modeling, simulation, and analysis (MSA) to track and guide coordinated development efforts.
