The Department of Defense (DoD) Modeling and Simulation Coordination Office (DMSCO) is the focal point for coordinating all matters regarding modeling and simulation across the DoD for the Undersecretary of Defense (Research and Engineering) (USD(R&E)). Modeling and simulation (M&S) is an enabler of warfighting capabilities. It helps to save lives, to save taxpayer dollars, and to improve operational readiness. DMSCO assists the DoD to use M&S in a cost-effective manner through tools, policies, standards, guidance, and collaborative forums.

The use of simulations and simulators to provide training procedures improves individual and collective capabilities. Military forces train with a wide range of simulated weapons, ships, aircraft, and other vehicles in conjunction with live training on actual equipment. Within the military--and in other professions--, M&S helps provide a safer and lower resource-intensive rehearsal capability for a wide variety of training.

Training is one of the most employed of the M&S applications, but there are many other ways that M&S enables Department’s functions. In particular, M&S is used to analyze and inform the Department decisions in acquiring new capabilities, adopting new tactics, processing intelligence, and testing systems before they are put into the hands of our fighting forces.
