Abstract:

The Joint Synthetic Battlespace or JSB will support training, acquisition, test and evaluation, and research and development communities. To accomplish this, the JSB must operate at many levels of detail, including engineering level entity level mission level operational level and strategic level. The JSBs broad scope makes it impractical to build all new simulation components. Instead, the JSB will rely on existing components as much as possible. Integrating legacy simulations is, therefore, one of the most critical issues for the JSB. The JSB Integration Framework IF is being designed to address this critical issue. It is hoped that JSB IF concepts will eventually reduce the effort required for large-scale simulation integration by an order of magnitude. If successful, the JSB IF would permit construction of complex test beds or experiments in one or two months rather than one or two years. This paper describes an approach to developing JSBs integration framework, which clearly separates integration syntax and semantics, with an emphasis on innovative ontological semantic integration.
