Abstract:

In September 2001, a Calibration Experiment CalEx of the Army Materiel Command AMC Research, Development, and Engineering Center RDEC Federation was performed. Participants included members of the AMC RDECs, the Army Research Laboratory ARL, and the Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation Command STRICOM. The objective of this High Level Architecture HLA-based distributed simulation collaboration was to demonstrate the analysis capabilities of the AMC RDEC Federation. The AMC RDEC Federation is a distributed engineering and engagement level modeling and simulation environment. This report presents some of the network challenges that were experienced during the course of CalEx. Seven sites were connected via the Defense Research and Engineering Network DREN. Network performance to include latency and bandwidth, multicast issues, Run-Time Infrastructure RTI, firewalls and router issues will be discussed. Also, observations pertaining to the simulation network as an integration of the Local Area Network LAN, Metropolitan Area Network MAN, and Wide Area Network WAN will be presented with recommendations for network infrastructure modifications.
