Abstract : The objectives of the ICSS program were to: insert the individual combatant into the Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) compliant virtual environment; develop a more accurate representation of hostile combatants, neutrals, and friendlies in a dynamic synthetic environment; and develop a more realistic human interface. This report describes the assessment plan for the ICSS. Included are descriptions of the objectives of the ICSS program, its components, the objectives of the ICSS assessment, and the scope of the assessment (in terms of the ICSS tasks that are included). Time constraints and assessment approaches are presented. The approach for the development of lessons learned, which applies to all ICSS tasks, is then described. Each ICSS task (and where appropriate, subtasks) is described along with the assessment issues, general assessment approach, type of approach, scenario, performance measures, and tasks necessary to conduct the assessment. The computer resources and requirements and resources of the participating organizations are then presented. Finally, a labor and cost estimate is provided for each task.
