CAPABILITIES

 

Advanced Analytics Lab

ABOUT: The Advanced Analytics Lab is designed to host analytics software for risk M&S, simulation-based optimization, public health and healthcare database application development and GIS tools for developing graphical and terrain databases.

Full Description

Cyber Security Lab

ABOUT: The Cyber Security Lab at VMASC focuses on research that produces technological advances in cybersecurity and critical infrastructure security. The overarching research goal centers on modeling and analysis of threats to protect next generation Internet, cloud, mobile systems and networks and critical infrastructures.

Full Description

Digital Senses Lab

ABOUT: The Digital Senses Lab is designed to host human-computer interface and human behavior modeling activities. The lab consists of two smaller isolated work areas that can provide a controlled quiet environment for testing human subjects, and a larger open laboratory area for other activities.

Full Description

Human Dynamics Lab

ABOUT: The Human Dynamics Lab (HDL) focuses on studying both people in simulations and people interacting with simulations. Our People in Simulations research centers on modeling human behavior by combining agent-based modeling and simulation (ABMS) and large data sets.

Full Description

Medical M&S Tool Development Lab

ABOUT: Within the Healthcare and Medical M&S Lab is the Medical M&S Tool Development Lab which is centered on developing training tools for both clinical and academic settings. Unique education and training programs come to life via real-time simulation of actual patient data and imagery.

Robotics & Virtual Environment Lab

ABOUT: The Robotics and Virtual Environment (R&VE) Lab focuses on applied research development in the area of autonomous systems, robotics and virtual environments, frequently leveraging research in all areas to develop novel solutions to a wide range of problems across many disciplines.

Full Description

Simulation Experience & Analysis Lab

ABOUT: The Simulation Experience & Analysis Lab (SEAL) is a collaborative space showcasing the spectrum of Modeling and Simulation (M&S). The SEAL facilitates transdisciplinary research and development (R&D) throughout its 7,500 sq.ft of space which can be configured and zoned for both short and long term R&D efforts.

Full Description

Transportation Lab

ABOUT: Transportation lab at VMASC houses researchers seeking ways to increase individual and group mobility and safety through the use of M&S techniques. Research topics include several aspects of transportation, i.e. traffic modeling, transportation network planning, behavioral influences and constraints, aviation safety, maritime operations, logistics and distribution, and training.
