Abstract:

The System Integration Test SIT evaluates the utility of using advance distributed simulation ADS to support cost effective testing of an integrated missile weaponlaunch aircraft system. The Linked Simulator Phase of the test applies ADS and connects three simulators the shooter, the target, and the missile. These simulators were located in different installations across the country. This paper discusses the network design and final network architecture. Network personnel tested performance of the network and also came up against unexpected situations. These challenges and their solutions are examined in the paper. The goals of the Joint Advanced Distributed JADS Joint Test Force JTF and the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division NAWCWPNS networking teams were to create a network able to satisfy the test 5 Linked Simulator Phase LSP requirements and characterize the network performance. This paper discusses some of the networking issues encountered in meeting those goals.
