AbstractThis paper presents a conceptual overview and research direction related to the development of a constructive simulation for initiative based tactics. The intention of the paper is to better understand competency requirements in initiative based tactics in order to support training scenario design in a virtual training environment. The simulations of interest are cognitive models. The first section situates the development functions of understanding, training, and assisting human capabilities, in relationship to the traditional distinction of live, virtual and constructive simulations. The human development and their associated simulation types can also be laid out on a continuum of agent embedment in physical settings. The second section presents relevant cognitive modeling and simulated environment elements required by initiative based tactics; as well as some initial requirements for training scenario design. A conclusion summarizes the paper and indicates some future work possibilities.
