Abstract:

The DIS architecture defines a time and space coherent representation of a virtual battlefield environment, measured in terms of the human perception and behaviors of warfighters interacting in free play. It provides a structure by which independently developed systems may interact with each other in a well managed and validated combat simulation environment during all phases of the development process. A fundamental objective of the DIS architecture is to provide a blueprint to guide development of a general purpose system meeting the needs of a wide range of users. The architecture must therefore support the broadest possible range of user needs. At the same time, the architecture and the associated standards must provide sufficient design definition to achieve the goal of transparent interoperability of a very wide range of simulators, simulations, and actual equipment operating on instrumented ranges.
