CACI' SIMSCRIPT III is a new Modular Object-Oriented modeling and simulation programming language for building portable, high-fidelity, large-scale simulation and modeling applications with interactive graphical user interfaces, presentation and 2-D animation graphics. Imported geographical maps and airport or factory layouts create realistic visualizations.

SIMSCRIPT III supports objects and classes, including their attributes and methods, as well as sets (linked lists) of objects. An invocation of a "process method" represents an activity of an object which can be scheduled and can elapse simulation time. Both single and multiple inheritance are supported. Methods inherited from base classes can be overridden by derived classes. Support for modules allows the source code to be organized in a hierarchical structure. Large models can be divided into modules, which promote better source-code organization, facilitate the reuse of code, efficient development and easy model extensibility.
