Dr. Diallo has studied the concepts of interoperability of simulations and composability of models for the last six years. He developed a formal theory of interoperability and is currently extending it using Model Theory. He is currently conducting research into the design of infrastructures to integrate command and control systems (C2) with simulations or robotics. He is VMASC's lead researcher in CBMS (Coalition Battle Management Services), an expert in Modeling and Simulation, and lead of the M&S Interoperability group at VMASC.
