LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 20 November 2013 – A standard for distributed simulations implementing multiple architectures that was sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Standards Activities Board has been recently published.
IEEE Standard 1730.1™, IEEE Recommended Practice for Distributed Simulation Engineering and Execution Process Multi-Architecture Overlay (DMAO) was published on 1 November 2013 and is available thru the IEEE Standards Store at http://www.techstreet.com/ieee/products/.
The US Department of Defense and North Atlantic Treaty Organization member nations use simulations in their day-to-day operations to conduct war games, systems design and acquisition, experiments, analyses, exercises, test and evaluation, and training both across the room and across the world. Individual simulations developed using different architectures (e.g., IEEE 1516 series, High Level Architecture, and IEEE 1278 series, Distributed Interactive Simulation) are often linked together to accomplish operational needs.
Linking simulations using multiple architectures requires thoughtful engineering and execution to ensure the reality portrayed remains true. IEEE 1730.1™ provides program managers and engineers with the guidance needed to create credible multi-architecture distributed simulation environments by identifying the specific technical issues associated with multi-architecture environments and providing guidance to effectively address those issues.
The Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO)-developed standard, IEEE 1730.1™, is a companion to IEEE 1730™, Recommended Practice for Distributed Simulation Engineering and Execution Process (DSEEP). Both standards are available thru the IEEE Standards Store at http://www.techstreet.com/ieee/products/.
SISO is a sponsor committee of the IEEE Computer Society Standards Activities Board. For more information about SISO-developed standards, visit http://www.sisostds.org.
