The Aggregate Level Simulation Protocol (ALSP) concept was initiated by ARPA in January 1990, the first laboratory demonstration took place in January 1991, and the first fielding in support of a major military exercise took place in July 1992. Since then, the ALSP confederation of models has grown from the original two members to six. In support of this(More)
The venerable problem solving technique of simulation finds itself in the midst of a revolution. Where once it was regarded as a “technique of last resort” for systems analysis, today simulation is widely applied to support myriad purposes, including: training, interaction, visualization, hardware testing, and decision support in real-time. Advanced(More)
The DOD High Level architecture (HLA) has recently become the required method for the interconnection of all DOD computer simulations. The HLA addresses the rules by which simulations are designed to facilitate interoperability, the method by which information exchanged between simulations is described, and a standard set of software services provided by a(More)
A project is currently underway which involves testing a distributed system − the Run Time Infrastructure (RTI) component of the High Level Architecture (HLA). As part of this effort, a test suite has been designed and implemented to provide a coordinated and automated approach to testing this distributed system. This suite includes the creation and(More)
The ever-increasing volume of analytical literature makes it important to be able to compare unambiguously the advantages and disadvantages of analytical methods. To this end, a set of consistent definitions and methods for determining quantitative performance-characteristics (e.g., precision, sensitivity, bias) is needed. The aim of this series of papers(More)
A new distributed test system is used to verify the Runtime Infrastructure (RTI) component of the High Level Architecture (HLA). As part of this effort, a test suite has been designed and implemented to provide a coordinated and automated approach to testing this distributed system. This paper describes the application of this test environment and its(More)
Statements on the errors of analytical results are an important aspect of characterizing the performance of analytical methods. The general nature of random and systematic errors is briefly discussed, and methods of numerically defining the former are considered. It is suggested that the standard deviation of analytical results be used exclusively as the(More)
The Aggregate Level Simulation Protocol (ALSP) interface technique is now entering its second year of practical application. ALSP is designed to permit multiple, pre-existing combat simulations to interact with each other over local and wide area networks. Army, Navy, and Air Force simulations have been linked, using ALSP, to form a confederation of models(More)
