Assessing MOE (Measure of Effectiveness) of a weapon system is important as we invest significant efforts to develop the weapon system. OpenSIM (Open Simulation environment for Interoperable Models) has been developed to help users perform complex tasks for simulation-based weapons effectiveness analysis. In this paper, we present tools and services of OpenSIM and illustrate how we can utilize the OpenSIM for weapons effectiveness analysis with an example of SAM (Surface-to-Air Missile) in AAW (Anti-Air Warfare).
