Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) research efforts to transition cognitive modeling from the laboratory to operational environments are finding that available architectures and tools are difficult to extend, lack support for interoperability standards, and struggle to scale. This paper describes a component-based modeling and simulation framework that exploits the Discrete Event System Specification (DEVS) formalism to eliminate these impediments. It extends the earlier DEVS Modeling Language (DEVSML) architecture and integrates Domain specific languages (DSLs). The paper discusses the framework and the transformation processes with a DSL tailored to the needs of cognitive modeling.
