Abstract: The representation of human aspects within Soldier-centered modeling and simulation (M&S) environments presents significant challenges in affect model availability, accessibility, and applicability within the condition-specific, parameter-driven Soldier representation and performance trade space. Furthermore, the increasing complexity of affect models poses substantial and often unsupportable systems integration effort for timely and efficient use. The Distributed Soldier Representation (DSR) project, led by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Human Research and Engineering Directorate (HRED) Simulation & Training Technology Center (STTC), aims to develop a service-oriented distributed M&S capability and provide performance factor representation of various degrees of fidelity within entity-level simulation environments in support of Soldier training and mission rehearsal.
