Modeling tools and services are identified as essential elements in obtaining a scientific basis so that a focal point can be established to obtain possible solutions in the defense market. The U.S. Department of Defense's (DoD's) modeling tools and services market is found to be diverse and disparate, taking a part on various research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E) programs.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (defense.frost.com), Analysis of U.S. DoD Modeling Tools and Services, finds that the DoD is projected to spend $5.04 billion on RDT&E programs in 2013. It is expected that the U.S. Army will be the largest consumer of modeling tools and services for 2013.

Modeling tools and services offer scientific data that can save time and resources through the use of simulated troops, equipment and procedures. Data generated by the use of modeling tools and service eliminates unnecessary effort and keys in on most productive options.
"A large percentage of failed modeling tools and services are directly correlated to a lack of a subject-matter expert's input on integration," said Frost & Sullivan's Senior Industry Analyst John Hernandez. "Modeling tools and services that cannot integrate with other government systems in place will in most cases fail to succeed."
Successful solutions that incorporate the verification, validation and accreditation of experts in the field will play an integral role in defense RDT&E, saving time and resources.
However, human behavior modeling remains unreliable and is still a missing piece of the puzzle necessary to simulate more precise and trustworthy results.
Continuing developments in the study of environmental and man-made effects on both animate and inanimate objects will prove to be a major milestone within the modeling tools and services market that is eventually expected to converge into numerous other markets.
Additionally, soldiers returning home due to force reductions in Iraq and Afghanistan will contribute lessons learned in combat, thus generating new training requirements. Budget restraints will demand stringent justification guidelines for spending which can be obtained through scientific data extracted from modeling tools and services.
"In comparison to conventional methods, modeling tools and services are more cost effective," noted Hernandez. "As budget deficits occur, these tactics will become fundamental aspects of DoD training."
