Abstract:

The recent IITSEC 2001 Coalition Training Demonstration held between the US, Australian and Dutch Navies demonstrated a coalition training exercise using Advanced Distributed Simulation to simultaneously connect military training simulators in the USA, Australia and the Netherlands. Whilst participating in the setup and running of this exercise each nation used whatever tools were available to establish and maintain connectivity and interoperability. As one of the lessons learned from such a coalition exercise, this paper discusses a proposal to make available to all participating coalition nations a Common Coalition Toolset CCT which comprises a set of software applications used to establish and maintain connectivity and interoperability for such coalition training demonstrations andor exercises. This paper describes a candidate CCT application - a DIS Entity State PDU Generator. This application was found to be extremely useful when setting up a multiplayer Advanced Distributed Simulation such as the recent IITSEC 2001 Coalition Training Demonstration.
