Summary: 
In GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) Distributed Simulation Environment (GDSE), the simulation task could be designed with the sharing models on the Internet. However, too much information and relation of model need to be managed in GDSE. Especially if there is a large quantity of sharing models, the model retrieval would be an extremely complex project. For meeting management demand of GDSE and improving the model retrieval efficiency, the characteristics of service simulation model are analysed firstly. A semantic management method of simulation model is proposed, and a model management architecture is designed. Compared with traditional retrieval way, it takes less retrieval time and has a higher accuracy result. The simulation results show that retrieval in the semantic management module has a good ability on understanding user needs, and helps user obtain appropriate model rapidly. It improves the efficiency of simulation tasks design.
