Performance Analysis of Live-Virtual-Constructive and Distributed Virtual Simulations : Defining Requirements in Terms Of Temporal Consistency

In a live-virtual-constructive (LVC) environment, people and real system hardware interact with simulated systems. Introducing these real-world elements into the simulation environment imposes timing constraints which, from a software standpoint, places the design of LVCs into the class of real-time systems. A distinguishing characteristic of LVCs is the… (More)
