Abstract:

This SBIR Phase II effort was aimed at implementation of an interactive graphics facility for network modeling to simulate battle command technical architectures to guide the definition, design, and development of the Army Battle Command System ABCS. PSI delivered a hierarchical iconic modeling facility that can be used to structure and restructure both models and scenarios, interactively, while simulations are running. This tool provides an open environment in which modelers can develop their own tailored models and share them easily with anyone. These models can be copied and modified by different organizations for use in different applications while being protected from unwanted change at the same time. During this effort, PSI built and demonstrated advanced run-time graphics facilities for hierarchical icons which support the deployment of an aggregate facility, such as a shelter, and the push-down of this facility into basic entities, such as various terminals, computers, multiplexors, switches and radios of different types, with appropriate graphic interaction at each level in the hierarchy. In addition, hierarchical icon movement, where icons can contain subicons that move independently of each other, but relative to the next level in the hierarchy, was demonstrated.
