SUMMARY Computer-based training simulators have been used extensively, most notably in flight simulation. Over the past 20 years, surgical simulators have been developed, initially for training of minimally invasive surgery and more recently for open surgical simulation. The key effort in today's surgical simulation field is to develop metrics to evaluate(More)
This paper describes a simple distributed simulation for support of emergency response exercises. The simulation, called the Immersive Synthetic Environment for Exercises (ISEE), was inspired by the simplicity of Web-based role playing games (RPGs) which have all the elements of distributed simulations, but do not rely on complex interoperability software(More)
National-scale critical infrastructure protection depends on many processes: intelligence gathering, analysis, interdiction, detection, response and recovery, to name a few. These processes are typically carried out by different individuals, agencies and industry sectors. Many new threats to national infrastructure are arising from the complex couplings(More)
