Interoperability of systems is not a cookie-cutter-function. There are various levels of interoperability between two systems ranging from no interoperability to full interoperability. In the technical domain, various models for levels of interoperability already exist and are used successfully to determine the degree of interoperability between information(More)

The Internet started as a web of documents. The Semantic Web is targeting a web of data, enabling efficient machine-to-machine data exchange. In order to utilize the Internet for distributed simulation, procedures are needed for migration, alignment, and orchestration of the execution, which means higher levels of interoperation. This paper introduces(More)
The distributed information technologies collectively known as Web services recently have demonstrated powerful capabilities for scalable interoperation of heterogeneous software across a wide variety of networked platforms. This approach supports a rapid integration cycle and shows promise for ultimately supporting automatic composability of services using(More)
MRM (MRM) and Composability are two of the most challenging topics in M&S. They are also related. In this paper, which was written to set the stage for conference discussion of related papers, we discuss how addressing the MRM challenge is sometimes a necessary -- although not sufficient -- step towards solving the composability challenge. This paper(More)
There are many good books written on the topics of combat modeling and distributed simulation and most of them are used as references in this book, so why write another book on this topic? The reason is simple: while all other books in this domain successfully highlight special topics in detail none of them compiles the basic knowledge of all contributing(More)
JDMS, Volume 3, Issue 1, January 2006 Pages 27–44 © 2006 The Society for Modeling and Simulation International Service-oriented architectures promise easier integration of functionality in the form of web services into operational systems than is the case with interface-driven system-oriented approaches. Although the Extensible Markup Language (XML) enables(More)
There is a strong necessity to solve the interoperability issue between information systems used for Command, Control, Computing, Communications, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Intelligence (C4ISR) and combat simulation systems. Interopera-bility is an operationally driven requirement in several application domains of combat simulation systems and it is(More)
