Abstract
The Department of Defense (DoD) Modeling and Simulation Steering Committee (M&S SC) is sponsoring several Acquisition Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Projects. One of those projects is titled, Standardized Documentation for Verification, Validation, and Accreditation (VV&A). Previous efforts defined standardized content and format requirements (i.e., templates) for four core VV&A documents, now codified in a new Military Standard (MILSTD-3022) and associated Data Item Descriptions. A tool is under development to automate those templates to assist developers in creating standardized VV&A information across the DoD and Military Departments. In support of this effort, the Naval Postgraduate School was tasked to identify specific VV&A metadata that will enable the sharing of information across all communities enabled by M&S via the Global Information Grid (GIG) anywhere in the world and at anytime, and to formalize the structure and content of that metadata and the content of VV&A documents using the Extensible Markup Language (XML). This document describes the design of XML schemas defining the structure and content of standardized VV&A documentation and VV&A documentation project-level metadata.
