Abstract:

As networking technologies and computer hardware performance advanced in the late 1980s, distributed simulation became a feasible way to provide military training at distant, sometimes remote locations. Efforts were made to advance the technologies surrounding distributed simulation, from networking protocols to the representation of the battlespace and its entities. The SSC San Diego efforts described in this paper supported advances in distributed-simulation-related areas throughout the 1990s and continue to support the next generation of 21st century simulation systems.
