The U.S. Army’s Research, Development, and Engineering Command (RDECOM) is seeking people to roleplay with Intel and STTC (Simulation and Training Technology Center) for “User Scalability Experiment 1” on Friday, March 22 from 6 pm EDT to 8 pm EDT (3-5 pm SLT).
SIGN UP HERE >>> https://18.104.22.168/form.php
The MOSES Scalability experiment is ready to accept volunteers to participate. The experiment is designed to monitor and test performance of the Dynamic Scene Graph (DSG) technology developed in part by Intel Corp. The participants will be allowed to select a role to play a scenario set in the fictional town of Brentville, Atropia. 100 roles have been designed and if we get more than 100 volunteers, more roles may be created. We know the the DSG can handle much more than 100 connections, however we wish to use this experiment to establish baseline behaviors and server loads. There will be more events like this one throughout the year, gradually increasing in scale.
The scenario has a company of 40 soldiers who have been ordered to patrol the town of Brentville and interact with the residents. The company’s mission is to attempt to map the political structure of the town, learn who is really in charge, and figure out the social networks. The soldiers are also tasked to be on the lookout for weapons caches and signs of explosives manufacturing activities.
The 50 townspeople are arranged into 4 families, each with an agenda and secrets. When you sign up, a dossier of your role is provided as well as your allegiances and activities. Participation is anonymous, however you must enter a valid email address so that we can verify you are not a bot and send you the role dossier.
This link provides more detailed background information on the experiment, the scenario, and the roles:
This will be on a special configuration of the Project MOSES (Military Open Simulator Enterprise Strategy) grid with Intel configuring a grid with DSG (Distributed Scene Graph) to allow for massively more avatars to take part. The scenario is set in the fictional town of Brentville, Atropia, which possesses significant oil and gas reserves in both the northeast and the Caspian Sea. Further, the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline, one of the most critical infrastructure components in the region, originates near its capital city. These rich natural resources generate potential threats from external forces.
Feel free to pass the link along to your colleagues who may be interested in participating. We are looking for a minimum of 100 users, more are welcome.
