The Foundation Initiative 2010 FI 2010 project is an interoperability initiative of the Director, Test, Systems Engineering and Evaluation, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense Acquisition and Technology, funded through the Central Test and Evaluation Investment Program CTEIP. The Army is the lead service for execution, with Navy and Air Force support. The FI 2010 effort is postured to improve systems development, testing, training and fielding through the application of object-oriented systems interoperability between simulations, hardware-in-the-loop HITL test laboratories, liveoperational tests, and training systems. The FI 2010 concept builds on High-Level Architecture HLA and Test Training Enabling Network Architecture TENA standards and includes a core set of tools, inter-range communication capabilities, interfaces to existing assets, a repository of reusable software and procedures for conducting an object-oriented exercise. FI 2010 serves as the foundation upon which ranges will want to build their future investments. Therefore, the development strategy relies upon partnering with ranges from the beginning, and this is accomplished through the creation of development test cells and coordination with Range Commanders Council and the Common Test and Training Range Architecture working groups. This paper provides an overview of the FI 2010 project and supplies details of the objectives to be accomplished in FY 98. These include tests and assessments of the simulation and federation object model development tools provided by the Defense Modeling and Simulation Office and a synthesis of requirements for a universal, flexible display engine with reusable components. They also include a check-out of the latest HLA runtime infrastructure and a Hardware-in-the-Loop to Open Air Range interaction investigation involving the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, the Air Force Development Test Center and the Naval Air Warfare Center.
