Military complex system is a hotspot of current operational research. Due to the non-reproducibility of complex system and various complexity, traditional observation, experiment and other methods cannot effectively carry out the research, while simulation technology has become an important means of delving into complex systems. This paper describes our concept of military simulation and analysis system (MSAS), and how this system provides more accurate analysis and forecast methods to achieve better credibility of the results, aiding decide-making and reducing the decide risk for military complex system. The key issues of MSAS are discussed, especially system infrastructure, military model infrastructure and data. The paper then presents some observations and areas for further research.
