MV4502 Simulation Development Practicum

This course provides the students the opportunity to work directly with a full scale, deployed combat simulation. This class has two main objectives. The first is to gain a deeper understanding of the inner structure of modern combat simulation systems. This goes beyond just looking at conceptual descriptions of the components to looking at the implementation intricacies that make such systems work. The second is as a practicum to provide students experience with all of the processes involved in the development of simulation software. This includes requirements definition, test and evaluation and software design and implementation. The intent is to have the students gain hands on experience in all aspects of these processes. By looking at a deployed system that is being used by the Marine Corps and Army, the students will develop an appreciation for the issues that are encountered in the real world that are often masked in purely pedagogical examples.
