SER - Simulation and Environment Reuse Forum

The Simulation and Environment Reuse (SER) Forum addresses proposed standards for multi-domain use and reuse of digital representations, models, simulations, and infrastructure. Key points of emphasis include:

  • Reusability, including data, metadata, simulation frameworks,  environmental data, etc., for multiple categories of simulations.
  • Elimination of barriers to reuse, both from technical and business perspectives.  Technical considerations include fidelity, composability, data resolution, and integration of real-time and non-real-time representations.  Business considerations include security classification, open source methodologies (e.g., emergent culture, open source licensing, etc.), and data distribution (before and during an exercise).
  • Practical experiences and lessons learned, especially in the areas of urban community representations, preparedness for and responses to catastrophic events, global information grid compatibility, large-scale simulations, multi-resolution models, multi-sensor correlation, data transformation efficiency, and automation for transformation/integration/composition.
