US Army trains in open source 3-D virtual cyber-world

The US Army and associated federal agencies are said to be testing prototype “virtual world” technologies in a secure open source environment.

Intended to simulate “in theatre” scenarios to stimulate team building skills and wider training and analysis initiatives, the work to test out as many as 400 use cases is being carried out in the Research Lab Simulation and Training Technology Center in Orlando.

The test environment is known as the Military Open Simulator Enterprise Strategy, or (MOSES) for short.
