The Coalition Battle Management Language (C-BML) is an open standard being developed for the exchange of digitized military information among command and control (C2), simulation and autonomous systems by the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO). As the first phase of the C-BML standard nears its release, the Phase 2 Drafting Group (DG) has proposed a framework to identify and track the concerns and requirements to be addressed in the next major C-BML standard release. Following this proposition, the NATO Modeling and Simulation Group 085 started an activity to put into place a prototype engineering process for the development and maintenance of a unified C2-SIMulation (C2SIM) Scenario INitialization and EXecution (SINEX) Model. As part of this activity, the group also developed a draft C2SIM Distributed Simulation Engineering and Execution Process (DSEEP) Overlay for the development of federations comprised of simulation and C2 systems. The current paper reports on these activities and also provides recommendations for the integration of the SINEX Process as part of a unified C2SIM interoperability standard that will include the alignment and convergence between the Military Scenario Definition Language (MSDL) and C-BML.
