|Summary||COMBATXXI is a high-resolution analytic combat simulation that has been co-developed by MCCDC and TRAC-WSMR since 1998. The combined arms simulation represents individual entities (i.e., vehicles, aircraft, riflemen, etc.) at the tactical-level of operations up to reinforced battalion sized units. The simulation is newly developed, with its first fully fielded release planned for Oct 2009. Modeling and analysis with preliminary versions of the model for the Company-level Fires Study have been encouraging, although some documentation and desired functionality of interest to the Marine Corps has been lacking. COMBATXXI offers the capabilities of modeling amphibious operations and supporting detailed sensor-to-shooter analyses to include critical C4ISR links. However, this potential has yet to be realized due to lack of suitable behaviors and technical support within the MCCDC analytic environment. The Modeling and Virtual Environment (MOVES) Institute of the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) possesses the unique technical expertise to support and extend MCCDC's analytic use of COMBATXXI. Such work will also serve to further promote the special relationship between NPS and MCCDC.|
