Technologies and methods have been developed within C4I systems that permit them to function as federates using the High Level Architecture HLA. The HLA Runtime Infrastructure RTI has been shown to run successfully on C4I system hardware that is based on the Defense Information Infrastructure Common Operational Environment DII COE. The most prominent example to date has been the operation of the RTI with the Global Command and Control System GCCS and GCCSMaritime that both utilize the DII COE. The GCCS HLA interface has been used successfully with simulations such as the Joint Theater Level Simulation JTLS, the Navy Simulation System NSS, and the Pegasus Federation. These federations span the range of potential military applications from training, to experimentation, planning, and course of action COA analysis. This paper provides an overview of the various federation applications in which GCCS has been used to date, and also discusses the benefits of using HLA and the DII COE to improve C4I-Simulation interoperability.
