Abstract : This report presents our preliminary findings and observations on how the Air Force can more effectively apply Advanced Distributed Simulation (ADS) technologies for analysis. We discussed ADS with the analysis and ADS communities, and participated in several ADS efforts, including the Synthetic Theater of War Europe (STOW-E), a Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO) technical engineering demonstration (TED), and the Airborne Laser (A EL) Test Series 7. As a result, we have identified several advantages and challenges ADS presents analysts. This report reviews several general ADS analysis issues, as well as several specific points. The emphasis of the report is on the improvements that are required in ADS in order to allow credible analysis. Note also that while our emphasis is analysis, several of these suggested improvements relate in part, or even in their entirety,
