Abstract:

This thesis details the critical need for deployable combat simulations for training in todays surge force environment. To truly realize deployment of these simulations on Naval vessels and in remote theaters, simulations for training must be wireless. Wireless standards 8O2.llabg are presented in detail to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of each. This thesis then investigates the viability of deploying combat simulations for training using wireless devices. To this end, the Joint Semi-Automated Forces JSAF, combat simulation model and the Virtual Helicopter VEHELO training simulation entity are tested in an 8O2.lla wireless environment against the VEHELO application in a wired environment. 8O2.lla is proposed as part of an overall solution to deploy combat simulations for training. This is primarily because of its high data rates and ability to co-locate access points without interference. Testing reveals that operating JEAF and Virtual Helicopter via the High Level Architecture HLA with User Datagram Protocol UDP packets in an 8O2.lla environment provides ample bandwidth with which to deploy combat simulation for training for the simulations conducted.
