A summary of the important aspects of the environment in cislunar space important to the simulation of space vehicles is presented. Models of this environment are developed, and estimates of the required parameters are made on the basis of currently available data. Thes models have been constructed with an emphasis toward maximum simplicity of representation, in order that the computations be compatible with real time simulation of space vehicles.
