Abstract : The Modular Semi-Automated Forces (MODSAF) simulation tool traditionally models a weapon's physical and behavioral characteristics by loading simplistic algorithms that are derived from generic data into the main simulation application. This causes inherent problems. The processor load of the weapon models must remain relatively low to maximize the entity count per workstation. This is often the leading cost driver in an exercise. In addition, using sensitive weapon data imposes security issues on the MODSAF application.
