The Marine Corps M&S IPT is the action arm for Marine Corps M&S, and it focuses on tasks such as:
- Foster widely-needed M&S capabilities beyond the reach of individual programs.
- Improve collaboration of Marine Corps M&S communities.
- Empower Marine Corps M&S community leads by removing system obstacles identifying new options for approaching tasks, and helping support widely-shared needs.
- Increase the interoperability, commonality, and reuse of M&S tools, data, and services.
MCMSO is supported by a Marine Corps M&S Integrated Process Team (IPT). The IPT is formed from the Marine Corps community leads, as defined above, who shall manage M&S in their community.
The mission of the Marine Corps IPT is to work to increase collaboration and effectiveness of Marine Corps M&S through improved interoperability, commonality, and reuse of M&S tools, data, and services. The IPT will also support MCMSO in this same mission and in MCMSO’s work with other services and DoD communities enabled by M&S.
Additional members from Marine Corps organizations using M&S in support of their missions are encouraged and welcome to attend M&S IPTs, participate in M&S issue discussion and present briefs on their M&S utilization. While additional members are not voting members they can request their opinions be attached to any Marine Corps M&S IPT recommendations.
