The article deals with application of Discrete Event Simulation in professional training which focuses on analysis, planning, management and decision making support during military operations characterized by high complexity, dynamics, large number of influencing factors and utilization of advanced technologies. One of the key areas of the planning process and subsequent implementation of the logistical support to deployed units, especially during the first phase of the operation, is the Reception, Staging and Onward Movement (RSOM) process. Logistics planners seek a compromise option, i.e. optimum between time available, cost and quality of implementation when planning and subsequently implementing optimal solutions. The paper deals with the possibility of using simulation in the field of training and logistics planning by implementing a specific technology, possible future aspects, operating conditions and tactical entities – such as Autonomous Systems.

This paper offers a systematic and rigorous methodological framework for alternative futures development under growing uncertainty and complexity. It focuses on the area of military technology evolution with focus on cybernetics and robotic systems. Effectiveness of defense management is significantly constrained by its ability to predict evolution of our strategic environment, assess its impact on decision making and poses thoughtful questions about the possible consequences of current and poss...

Critical infrastructure represents a complex system that is constantly exposed to negative effects and threats from both external and internal environment. The consequences of the action of these effects and threats cause disruptions or failures of operational parameters of the critical infrastructure elements. Such failures are then reflected in negative impacts on other critical infrastructure elements or directly on the protected interests of society, i.e. security of the state, the economy a...

Abstract This paper introduces a logistics and transportation simulation that can be used to provide insights into potential outcomes of proposed military deployment plans. More specifically, we model a large-scale real-world military deployment planning problem (DPP) that involves planning the movement of military units from their home bases to their final destinations using different transportation assets on a multi-modal transportation network. We apply, for the first time, the event graph me...

This is the third edition of Connecting to Compete, a report summarizing the findings from the new dataset for the 2012 Logistics Performance Index (LPI) and its component indicators. Based on a worldwide survey of global freight forwarders and express carriers, the LPI is a benchmarking tool developed by the World Bank that measures performance along the logistics supply chain within a country. The index can help countries identify challenges and opportunities and improve their logistics perfor...

Technical Activity in the NATO Modelling and Simulation Group (MSG–145) for operationalization of new Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) C2SIM standard is approaching its completion. This second generation of C2SIM standards from SISO for coalitions to interoperate their national command and control (C2) and simulation systems is ready for balloting and being the basis of a STANAG. This standard for synthetic battlespace can have a great impact on the effectiveness of coal...
Robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) are changing business, and transforming defense and warfare. In particular, the paper addresses the challenges from the easy availability of AI resources to be applied to drones that are already an asymmetric threat, and the issues concerning the Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems (LAWS) that promise military advantages like the reduction of deployed soldiers, loss of civilians, damage of infrastructures, and the rapid support to decision-making. Autonomo...
