prototype for ADL-style simulation primer
popular workshop for simulation managers, Modeling &
Simulation Basics, soon will be available via the Internet on your
personal computer, a product of improvements in Advanced
Distributed Learning (ADL) technology.
ADL is a
Department of Defense and the White House Office of Science and
Technology Policy initiative to
access to high-quality education and training materials that can
be tailored to individual learner needs and made available
whenever and wherever they are required…By making learning
software accessible, interoperable,
durable, reusable, adaptable and affordable, the ADL initiative
will ensure that academic, business, and government users of
learning software gain
the best possible value from the materials they
developers have demonstrated a Web-based learning module ...
Emergency management: Film at
crews of university film studies students coordinated by IST were
on the scene as a simulated aircraft disaster played out at a
Central Florida airport recently.
personnel from 12 agencies participated in Emergency 2000, an
all-day a multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional, community mass
casualty and family assistance simulation drill. The camera crews
got it all on tape.
Airport, northwest of Orlando hosted the exercise. Four area
hospitals participated, accepting five “victims” from the
crash airlifted from the staging ground by rescue helicopter
teams. Even the American Red Cross was on hand to counsel
designed the simulation to challenge the entire emergency response
network. A report to the Seminole County emergency action center
informed dispatchers that a commercial aircraft experienced a...
Army Secretary Pays IST a Visit
Secretary of the
Army Louis Caldera (at left in above photo) recently paid a
visit to the Institute for Simulation & Training for a brief
overview of several of the Institute’s Army-sponsored projects.
IT Center’s catalog software
Technology Service Center at IST is taking its catalog software
development to higher levels of “knowledge management.”
The Air Force,
Navy and Army already use IST’s software for cataloging their
modeling and simulation resources. A member of any subscribing
military service component can search across the three military
services for information and take advantage of a number of
automated tools that make searching, developing reports,
contributing updates and keeping up-to-date a lot easier...
