This is a NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA report procured by the Pentagon and made available for public release. It has been reproduced in the best form available to the Pentagon. It is not spiral-bound, but rather assembled with Velobinding in a soft, white linen cover. The Storming Media report number is A660514. The abstract provided by the Pentagon follows: Despite the many advances achieved within both Modeling and Simulation and Information Technology over the past several decades, practical application of such technology remains under-utilized by operational units in the United States Navy. Furthermore, when such technology has been deployed in the last decade it has been to exercise operator proficiency or increase C41 battlespace awareness. Few tools have allowed operational warfighters to run what-if' simulation scenarios to aid in development of tactical plans for executing published doctrine. The approach taken in this thesis is to select an exemplar warfare area, in this case Anti-Terrorism and Force Protection for Navy ships, and through research and development to identify, develop, and deploy the necessary modeling and simulation (M & S) technologies to demonstrate a prototypical planning tool that can be used by today's deployed warfighter. All research and work is conducted in a web-based, user-centric' fashion utilizing a combination of user-driven and agent-based control of entities for simulation iterations, along with various open source technologies which include Extensible 3D Graphics (X3D), Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), and Extensible Markup Language (XML).
