Abstract:

In this report an outline is given of the ongoing developments of distributed simulation and its standardisation for interoperability of simulations. It highlights the High Level Architecture HLA initiative of the DoD DM50, with its base module, the Run-Time Infrastructure RTI, which provides for communication between simulation applications. It also discusses the Real-time Platform-level Reference Federation Object Model RPR-FOM, a proposal for a data standardisation for DIS-like, real-time, human-in-the-loop physical platform simulation in HLA. Finally the Advanced Simulation Framework ASF is presented. The ASF is a software infrastructure for the development of distributed simulation applications and provides for a smooth transition from DIS to HLA by shielding the application developer from the underlying distributed simulation standards through a generic application programmers interface.
