Suppose you want to develop a drone that can roam the seas and spot debris so that ships can be directed to it and pick it up. It’s a good idea but how do you test your methods?
- Focus Areas
- ProjectsM&S Modeling and simulation is the use of representations of the world either statically or over time for the purpose of analysis for decision makers, training for operators, or acquisition for future system development. When compared to conventional training, field experimentation, or physical prototype development, models and simulations can greatly decrease costs while increasing flexibility and capability in training and analysis. Core Competencies The following is a list of our core competencies. Our faculty’s expertise and projects all fall within these categories: Augmented Reality & Computer Vision Human Behavior Simulation Human Systems & Training Computer Gaming, Visual & Web-based Simulation Simulation Modeling for Analysis Laboratory Facilities Simulation and Training Laboratory SAVAGE Laboratory Motion Capture Studio Vision Lab Featured Projects Behavior Analysis and Synthesis for Intelligent Training Training Expert Navigation NPS Vison Lab Landing Signal Officer (LSO) Database Replacement Benefits of working with the MOVES Institute Doing business with MOVES We are not motivated by profit so we can be objective and unbiased in all we do, focusing on the objectives of the customer, not of our bottom line. We have a built-in cadre of subject matter experts – the Naval Postgraduate School student body – who can focus their undivided…

- AcademicsOverview The Modeling, Virtual Environments and Simulation (MOVES) Academic Program at the Naval Postgraduate School grants Masters of Science and Ph. D. degrees. Our students are offered both fundamental and specialized courses in modeling and simulation (M&S), visual simulation technology, combat models and systems, and best practices and tools in support of training, analysis, acquisition, testing and operational capabilities. How can I get a modeling and simulation degree? Masters Degree The Masters program is a two-year, eight-quarter program whose core covers the fundamentals of modeling and simulation. Several concentration blocks focus on a variety of important subspecialties. Core Competencies Specialization Areas History and fundamentals of M&S Applied mathematics Computer systems Virtual environments Training and human systems M&S systems lifecycle management Modeling (system, combat, real-world physics, VV&A) JPME level 2 Environmental models, 3D modeling, and web-based technologies; Game-based systems, computer animation and computer vision; Discrete event simulation; Advanced combat modeling, including social, cultural and behavioral modeling; Training systems and human factors The final accomplishment in the Masters Degree program is the completion of a written thesis. This thesis is conducted on a research problem under the supervision of a MOVES faculty thesis advisor. Doctor of Philosophy The Doctor of Philosophy program is typically a 3-year…
