This is a report of my activities as a NASA Fellow during the summer of 2003 at the NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC). The core of these activities is the assigned project: the Virtual Test Bed (VTB) from the Spaceport Engineering and Technology Directorate. The VTB Project has its foundations in the NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) Intelligent Launch & Range Operations program (ILRO). The objective of the VTB project is to develop a unique collaborative computing environment where simulation models can be hosted and integrated in a seamless fashion. This collaborative computing environment will have as emphasis operational models. This report will focus on the decisions about the different simulation modeling environments considered, simulation platform development, technology and operational models assessment, and computing infrastructure implementation.
