Abstract
Many current force level simulations have abstracted the issues of decision-maker knowledge, access to information and communication links, all of which may be vital to the investigation of information warfare issues. A multi-nation workshop will take place in April 2016 to examine how information space effects could be included in new or legacy Computer-Generated Forces (CGF). CAE was tasked to perform a literature review on the modelling of an information layer and on the simulation of information layer warfare effects (referred to as information layer effects in the remainder of this document). Following the literature review, CAE developed a conceptual architecture for the inclusion of information layer and information layer effects in CGFs. Finally, CAE explored which technologies and research products could be used to implement the proposed conceptual architecture, and how legacy CGFs could be adapted to support the architecture.
