Abstract : The Defense Modeling and Simulation Office (DMSO) has sponsored the Environmental Effects for Distributed Interactive Simulation (E2DIS) Project, which is composed of eight tasks including the Survey Task. The Survey Task had three objectives: to develop a baseline of the Military Services current requirements for incorporation of the atmosphere and near-space environment and their effects in military models and simulations (the Requirements Survey), to identify atmospheric and near-space environmental models and databases and effects models and databases that are currently available from the services (the Capabilities Survey), and to compare the results from both survey efforts and make appropriate recommendations. In a series of three reports, Part I describes the results and findings from the Requirements Survey; this report, Part II, describes the results and findings from the Capabilities Survey; and Part III compares and assesses the results of both surveys. The Survey Team received questionnaires for 152 models and databases that were quality controlled and entered into an automated database management system for analysis. The results of the analysis are presented in this report. Both the Capabilities Survey database and the Requirements Survey database are available from PL/GPAA.
