The Maritime Operations Simulation (MarOpsSim) is a modern discrete event simulation being used by the U.S. Coast Guard. MarOpsSim was originally developed by the U.S. Coast Guard Research and Development Center to examine elements of the Search and Rescue and Law Enforcement missions. MarOpsSim is now being extended to encompass all fourteen Deepwater missions to support the Deepwater Acquisition. This document reports the results of the Core Verification and Validation (Core V&V) effort conducted at the Naval Postgraduate School by the authors. Five key core elements were tested: Random Number Generation, Event List Processing, Platform Movement, Sensing, and Script Parsing. Following rigorous tests, MarOpsSim is deemed to have had its core functionality validated.
