Runs in an enclaved network, capable of multiple levels of secured processing.Provide a stable in-kind Second Life-like environment.Provide guidance to other organizations wishing to replicate the MOSES results.Link with other organization in a hyper-grid manner to demonstrate external growth and scalability.Next Steps:Secured/Encrypted CommunicationsUser Authentication with certificates and CACLarger Scale User SupportIntegration/Conformance with the DoD Virtual World Framework3SFC Paul Ray Smith Simulation & Training Technology Center*Unclassified Approved For Public Release*3Why Was MOSES Created?Replacement to the Second Life Enterprise ProjectEffort to preserve significant investment in the SLE platform.Continue research started in the SLE platform.4SLE: 20 Feb 20118 Concurrent SimsVOIPMOSES: 26 Mar 2012182 Concurrent SimsVOIPMESH, Media on a Prim30+ Gb AssetsSFC Paul Ray Smith Simulation & Training Technology Center*Unclassified Approved For Public Release*What value does MOSES bring to military training applications?Breaks the traditional paradigm of modeling and simulation.Art PipelineComputationally SteerableThe scripting language can enact changes to objects without restarting simulation.Out of the Box External Communications MechanismsEverything in the environment is an interactive object, capable of being driven by external behavior models.Every Object can connect to an external data source.Flexible Terrain Real world terrain sources can be used.Terrain is deformable while simulation is running; May be restored via scriptingPersistent Virtual EnvironmentCapable of High Availability and UptimesMultiple Communications OptionsPoint to point chat, point to many chatPoint to point VOIP, point to many VOIP can replicate military radio behavior5SFC Paul Ray Smith Simulation & Training Technology Center*Unclassified Approved For Public Release*What are the down sides?Insecure communications between client and server. Phase II of the MOSES project will look at 100% encryption of all data transmitted/received.Content is produced to the client on demand. Susceptible to network lag.Physics engine needs work. Phase II of the MOSES project will experiment with alternate physics engines. 6SFC Paul Ray Smith Simulation & Training Technology Center*Unclassified Approved For Public Release*What does the MOSES architecture look like?7OpenSim Server 1-20OpenSim Server 21-40OpenSim Server 41-60OpenSim Server nRobust / MonitMumble ServerFirewall / NAT TranslationMOSESClient 1MOSESClient 2MOSESClient 3MOSESClient mSTTC NetworkUnknown Network(Internet)MySQL ServerSRAS ServerFirewall not partof MOSES systembut part of locationinfrastructureHypervisor VM ManagerHost Hardware:4x12 Core512 Gb RamTypical VM Guest:8 Core64 Gb RamSFC Paul Ray Smith Simulation & Training Technology Center*Unclassified Approved For Public Release*Lessons LearnedCreated preconfigured client.Subject matter experts may not be technical.Network is most precious resource.Community is critical for sustainment.Regular office hoursAssistance with managementAdopt flexible culturePlan ahead for growth, network/computing hardwareListen to open source developers to help make informed decisions8SFC Paul Ray Smith Simulation & Training Technology Center*Unclassified Approved For Public Release*Project Information9MOSES Website:http://fvwc.army.mil/moses/MOSES Account Page:http://107.7.21.240:8002/wifiMOSES Wiki:https://107.7.21.233/redmineSFC Paul Ray Smith Simulation & Training Technology Center*Unclassified Approved For Public Release*
