Abstract:

The NIU provides the capability to connect dissimilar simulators to an existing SIMNET network. The NIU transforms the existing simulator data into SIMNET PDUs, and provides additional overhead required to support the SIMNET protocol. The NIU allows simulators with non-homogeneous frame times to be interoperable on the same network. A Simulation Network SIMNET project detailed design specification describing the Network Interface Unit NIU software of the SIMNET hardware and software training system for vehicle crew training and operational training.
