Abstract:

The scope of this document describes all of the simulators and associated equipment on the MULTIRAD network at the Armstrong Laboratory and details of the protocol required to operate the system. The MULTIRAD network uses a distributed simulation approach employing the SIMNET 6.6 protocol with some extensions and modifications. distributed simulation operates in a particular network environment called a distributed simulation internet. This network environment may consist of a single local area network, or it may include a series of local area networks linked together by a long-haul network. Local area networks are referred to as sites, and the computers at each site attached to a local area network are referred to as simulators.
