Simulation interoperability is most often considered to be a technical problem e.g., Does every system support the same HLA standard and which RTI should we use or semantic problem e.g., How do we map different object models onto each other. Yet, reliably achieving high-quality distributed simulations requires to also consider more abstract questions regarding pragmatic, dynamic and conceptual issues e.g., How is aggregation and disaggregation treated by different simulation systems , Do different simulation systems interpret Rules of Engagement in the same way. In 2009, the Exploratory Team ET-027 identified 63 major issues which limit true simulation interoperability. In 2010, MSG-086 Simulation Interoperability was tasked to analyze the ET-027 interoperability issues in order to recommend and prototype information products augmenting the DSEEP to mitigate or obviate the identified issues. MSG-086 analyzed 46 interoperability issues in total and categorized these issues into nine issue groups. Detailed descriptions of all interoperability issues have been developed specifying the original problem, its influence on simulation interoperability as well as possible solution approaches and already existing work in the specific problem area. Based on the identified interoperability issues, MSG-086 developed a Guideline on Scenario Development for Military Simulation Environments to overcome scenario-related interoperability issues.
