DMS-MSR PDG – Discovery Metadata Specification for M&S Resources

The purpose of this group, initiated in February 2020, is to develop a metadata standard to describe modeling and simulation (M&S) resources in a manner that will be useful to the international M&S community in discovering various types of M&S-related resources, including, but not limited to, models, simulations, simulation federations, M&S-related tools, data sets, services, standards, and points of contact. The document product will build upon the Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Community of Interest (COI) Discovery Metadata Specification (MSC-DMS) developed under the U.S. DoD, and other previous metadata efforts. A product data file will also be developed to define the metadata unambiguously.
