Abstract:

Directed Energy DE weapons and weapons effects are not accurately modeled in a distributed simulation environment. The Distributed Interactive Simulation DIS, and High Level Architecture protocols were created when DE weapons were conceptual or in the initial development stages. IEEE 1278.1a is currently being updated by the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization SISO DIS Product Development Group PDG. The DE Tiger team, part of the DIS PDG, designed two new DIS PDUs for high fidelity DE distributed simulation DE Fire and DE Damage Status. This paper presents the DE weapon modeling techniques for precision and area DE weapons as well as Gaussian beam spot modeling algorithms. This paper also presents the ACE experiment plans and results.
