Abstract:

This report is a summary review of people and organizations developing ideas for Seamless Simulation. Seamless Simulation is defined as the linking of heterogeneous systems on a simulation network. The current Distributed Interactive Simulation DIS technology supports a network of hundreds of vehicles at the battalion tactical level. Systems such as computer generated forces interact at the vehicle level via a network protocol, and current efforts to produce a DIS network standard are aimed at homogeneous objects vehicle simulators implemented in a heterogeneous manner by different manufacturers. Seamless Simulation seeks to extend this technology to heterogeneous objects vehicle simulators and unit level wargames, for example. Recommendations are strengthen DoD support of Seamless Simulation projects extend the current DARPAPMTRADE Program Manager for Training Devices sponsored workshop on DoDIndustry Standards for the Interoperability of Defense Simulations from the vehicle level to the general defense simulation and system level allow the Seamless Simulation effort to take advantage of modern software engineering and become explicitly object oriented integrate the DoD effort with the business Object Management Group Architecture effort.
