Department of defense news release (July 28, 2005): four winners selected for modeling and simulation awards.

The Department of Defense announced today that four winners have been selected for the seventh annual Department of Defense Modeling and Simulation (M & S) Awards. The winners for each category are:

ACQUISITION

Joint Services Lightweight Standoff Chemical Agent Detector Team, Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical Biological Defense

Team award for innovation in the employment of a comprehensive M & S approach to support systems engineering analysis. Future standoff detection and contamination avoidance programs will use this effort as a baseline for implementing best engineering practices, which will lead to improved chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear systems, and a greater capability for the warfighter.

ANALYSIS

Joint Analysis Team, Headquarters and Support Activities Joint Cross-Service Group (Center for Army Analysis, Air Force Studies and Analysis Agency, Center for Naval Analyses)

Team award for providing senior DoD leaders with groundbreaking and innovative analytical solutions to complex challenges during the Base Realignment and Closure review.

TRAINING

U.S. Air Force Distributed Mission Operations Center, 505th Distributed Warfare Group

Team award for producing unmatched immersive synthetic combat environments for Air Force Virtual Flag exercises that linked the operational and tactical levels of war, directly increased joint readiness, and put the warfighter in charge of driving training transformation requirements.

CROSS-FUNCTION

Geometric Pairing Development Team, U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command

Team award for advancing "state-of-the-art" live force-on-force simulation, and the realistic integration of live, virtual, and constructive synthetic environments that will ultimately permit warfighters to truly train as they fight and operational testers to test as the warfighters fight.

The annual awards recognize achievement in support of DoD M & S objectives. Forty-eight nominations were received from across DoD.
