The technologic capabilities of autonomous systems continue to accelerate, and teams of autonomous systems and people (TASP) are becoming increasingly important, particularly where distributed maritime operations (DMO) are concerned. Computational experimentation offers unmatched yet largely unexplored potential to address DMO research questions, and we employ the POWer computational environment to model and simulate DMO organizations and phenomena. We begin by building upon prior research to establish a baseline model for comparison. Then we adapt such model to represent DMO, and we compare key results to elucidate important insights into both the potential and difficulty associated with DMO.
