The Environmental Data Cube Support System (EDCSS) is a DoD sponsored program to provide a consistent suite of environmental products for the modeling and simulation (M&S) community. EDCSS Products -- including data, imagery, effects, and text messages -- are developed for ingest by the simulation systems as well as the applications and staff supporting the simulations.

The EDCSS centralizes the definition, production, and distribution of all products to ensure all participants in M&S events have a correlated view of environmental conditions and their impact. All EDCSS products are generated from an underlying consistent environmental scenario that is developed by searching historical archives for relevant conditions and leveraging DoD operational models and authoritative data sources to produce an integrated environment representation.
