DAF Leaders Host Second Annual Modeling, Simulation Summit

Recommended Posts

Department of the Air Force Chief Model and Simulation Officer Richard Tempalski partnered with the Space Force’s Chief Technology and Innovation Officer Dr. Lisa Costa to host its second annual Modeling and Simulation Summit at the Clyde Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico, May 9-11. The M&S Summit puts into action guidance laid out in DAF strategy on implementing best practices for how models and simulations are effectively acquired, developed, managed and used by Department of Defense components. In alignment with the National Defense Strategy, the event brought together subject matter experts from across the department’s M&S community. Sessions at the conference focused on the theme, “Fusing Air and Space into Multidomain Operations: The Fight is On.” The three-day summit focused on the following topics: • Transformational M&S Enablers; • M&S Enabling Resilient Space Capabilities; • M&S Integrating Space Capabilities into Multi-Domain Operations The event attracted close to 600 participants from the Department of Defense industry, academia and international partners. Of the M&S Summit attendees, 61 participants represented the Space Force. Space Force attendees included personnel from all its field commands, the Space Warfighting Analysis Center, National Air and Space Intelligence Center and Air Force Research Laboratory.

      NASA NASA and the American Center for Manufacturing and Innovation (ACMI) signed an agreement Thursday, Feb. 29 to lease underutilized land in a 240-acre Exploration Park at the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston. ACMI will enable the development of facilities to enable commercial and defense space manufacturing.
      The agreement is the second such public/private lease agreement to allow industry and academia to use NASA Johnson land to create facilities for a collaborative development environment that increases commercial access and enhances the United States’ commercial competitiveness in the space and aerospace industries. NASA signed a similar lease with the Texas A&M University System earlier this month.
      Calling it the Space Systems Campus, ACMI plans to incorporate an applied research facility partnered with multiple stakeholders across academia, state and local government, the Department of Defense and regional economic development organizations.
      “For more than 60 years, NASA Johnson has been the hub of human space exploration,” said NASA Johnson Director Vanessa Wyche. “This Space Systems Campus will be a significant component within our objectives for a robust and durable space economy that will benefit not only the nation’s efforts to explore the Moon, Mars and the asteroids, but all of humanity as the benefits of space exploration research roll home to Earth.”
      As the home of Mission Control Center for the agency’s human space missions, astronaut training, robotics, human health and space medicine, NASA Johnson leads the way for the human exploration. Leveraging this unique role and location, Exploration Park will play a key role in helping the human spaceflight community attain U.S. goals for the commercialization and development of a robust space economy by creating an infrastructure that fosters a multi-use environment where academic researchers, aerospace companies and entrepreneurs can collaborate with NASA. Exploration Park will create an infrastructure that allows for a multi-use space hardware development environment, where academic researchers, aerospace companies and entrepreneurs can collaborate on space exploration’s greatest challenges.
      “ACMI Properties will develop this Campus to serve the needs of our future tenants, aerospace industry, the Department of Defense and other significant stakeholders that comprise our ecosystem approach,” said Simon Shewmaker, head of development for ACMI Properties. “Our aim is to support human spaceflight missions for the next 40 years and beyond.”
      NASA issued an announcement for proposals for use of the undeveloped and underutilized land near Saturn Lane on June 9, 2023, and has just completed negotiations with ACMI to formalize the lease agreement. The parcel is outside of Johnson’s controlled access area and adjacent to its main campus. NASA will lease the land for 20 years with two 20-year extention options, for a potential of up to 60 years.
      In the coming years, NASA and its academic, commercial, and international partners will see the completion of the International Space Station Program, the commercial development of low Earth orbit, and the first human Artemis campaign missions establishing sustainable human presence on the Moon in preparation for human missions to Mars.
      Johnson already is leading the commercialization of space with the commercial cargo and crew programs and private astronaut missions to the space station. The center also is supporting the development of commercial space stations in low Earth orbit, and lunar-capable commercial spacesuits and lunar landers that will be provided as services to both NASA and the private sector to accelerate human access to space. Through the development of Exploration Park, the center will broaden the scope of the human spaceflight community that is tackling the many difficult challenges ahead.
