Validation of human behavioral models, such as those used to represent hostile and/or friendly forces in training simulations is an issue that is gaining importance, as the military depends on such training methods more and more. However, this introduces new difficulties because of the dynamic nature of these models and the need to use experts to judge their validity. As a result, this paper discusses some conceptual approaches to carry out this task. These are based on comparing the behavior of the model to that of an expert, while the latter behaves normally in a simulated environment, under the same conditions seen by the model.
