Abstract : MITRE has implemented the Battlefield Environment Model (BEM) in ROSS, and object-oriented programming language, to provide a demonstration facility and basis for the evaluation of object-oriented programming for the Army hierarchy of combat models. The BEM was constructed in the MITRE Secure Processing Laboratory located in the MITRE Washington offices. This paper discusses object-oriented programming, describes the BEM and provides findings and observations on the implementation of BEM in ROSS and the utility of object-oriented programming.
