USING SIMULATION AS SERVICES
Mil & Aero | M&S as a Service | Model Driven Development | Repositories
Simware Solutions has been collaborating with the Sp MoD to develop a Repository of models of weapons and systems that can be deployed as Simulation services in dedicated simulation servers.
The reusability of simulation models in different simulation applications is very important to optimize the investment in the military simulation systems. But in order to have reusable assets is essential to develop them with open interfaces and purely based on standards, only in this way the assets would be integrable in different simulators and federations.
Sp MoD funded the development of a Model Driven infrastructure for the development of simulation assets. This infrastructure is based on SimDeveloper tool and leverage Simware platform to deploy the components as simulation services in dedicated simulation servers.
Using this infrastructure, a first batch of simulation services was built and has been integrated in NOGESI laboratory in a Weapon Server. This server provides as a HLA federate the next simulation services to the NOGESI federation:
Simulation services made with Simware are fully functional applications, leveraging the middleware and runtime infrastructure in Simware Core. These services can be integrated as a real time components of a simulator, using its DDS interface or as a Member of a federation using its HLA or DDS interface. Deployment and management of sim services in dedicated simulation servers is easy with the artefacts provided in Simware Web extension.
