Simulation Engine II

Simulation Engine II (SEII) is a Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) combat simulation engine designed specifically to support multi-domain operations at multiple levels - strategic, theater, operational, and tactical. SE II provides a base for new simulations with modern graphics, extensive environmental factors, and greater elements of random placement, inclusion, and triggers. Rigorously designed under CMMI Level 3 software engineering processes, SEII provides the unique value of increased readiness at reduced life-cycle cost with a common, reusable, generic open architecture “end-to-end” solution designed to accommodate future growth with “domain-specific” packages.

SEII supports a 3D globe domain, which allows visualization from the seabed to outer space of any platform, any location, anytime of the day on the planet. Seamlessly transition through sea, space, cyber, air, and land domains at all levels of conflict, from global strategic presence to individual system console operation. Our unique Global Tactical Simulation (GTS) domain package globe provides battlespace visualization of the entire Earth using the Earth’s actual shape, providing a “global game board” for IAMD visualization with correct relative motion for all simulated entities. Staying with one architecture for simulations, we have created an engine above and beyond just a naval simulation. Satellites and communications networks are a big part of DoD operations now, and new titles will include global scale operations like nothing before.

Sonalysts developed an SEII-based Phase II prototype “Standard Adaptive Maintenance Trainer” (SAM-T) for the U.S. Air Force that demonstrated the feasibility of adapting commercial simulation technology to support adaptive training in an engaging immersive environment. This research project provided the U.S. Air Force with a new Continuous Learning capability to close the current gap between the instructional adaptability and fidelity of current maintenance training systems and the complex demands of learning how to troubleshoot and maintain modern aircraft systems and subsystems.
