SimWare Framework is an innovation for massive real time distributed simulation.
Nowadays Interoperable and Open architectures are a growing demand for Simulation because of requirements for seamless Live-Virtual-Constructive (LVC) Interoperability and for the development of a Simulation System with a plug-play architecture.
SimWare is the first commercial product to fulfill these requirements, offering a framework for M&S that enables real time distributed simulation with an open and fully interoperable architecture.
SimWare is founded on a distributed data centric architecture that brings together IEEE HLA and the new OMG DDS standard (Data Distribution Service for Real Time Systems). SimWare data-centric approach and real time features, based on proven DDS standards, allows opening the architecture of a simulator, improving its ROI and time-to-market. SimWare Interoperable Wire Protocol, based on DDS Interoperability (DDSI) protocol, provides the best solution for seamless LVC Interoperability, avoiding actual point to point gateways solutions.
SimWare RTI is the first HLA middleware with an Open Wire Protocol, based on DDSI.
SimWare RTI takes advantage of DDS features to open the network interface and to deliver real time performance in data distribution.
SimWare RTI can be used as an standalone product, in HLA federations with real time requirements or with requirements to integrate with DDS compliant systems, and also as the HLA middleware to SimWare, providing HLA compliance to SimWare based solutions.
It is a HLA Run Time Infrastructure designed for Real Time Performance in large HLA Federations. SimWare RTI offers all the functionality of a HLA RTI with the performance, power and reliability of DDS. SimWare RTI provides every simulation service required for Virtual and Live simulation:
Data distribution service for real-time systems (DDS) is a specification of a publish/subscribe middleware for distributed systems created by the Object Management Group (OMG).
A high-level architecture (HLA) is a general purpose architecture for distributed computer simulation systems. Using HLA, computer simulations can interact with other computer.
We can compare DDS with HLA, but this comparison has to center in the common grounds of both standards. These common features are mostly related with the communication capabilities.
