Not Available The Defense Modeling and Simulation Office's High Level Architecture (HLA) supports implementation of advanced distributed weapons system analysis and training systems by linking dissimilar simulations. One of the grand challenges in HLA stems from the desire to represent large-scale operations in a single simulation and yet retain the ability to investigate certain aspects of the battle space in greater detail. In order to link simulations implemented at substantially different levels of resolution, a multi-resolution mapping framework is needed. Spectra Research, Inc. (S*R) and Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) propose to prototype a Multi-Resolution Mapping Framework (MRMF) tool and demonstrate it with a HLA toolsuite called Federate Connect. Federate Connect is under development to map the source code of a simulation to an HLA object model, build a Simulation Object Model, and generate a HLA compliant federate including middleware to connect to the HLA Run-time Infrastructure. The proposed MRMF tool will replace a simpler Object Model Resolver tool included in Federate Connect. By building on this existing baseline, we will be able to focus on developing a very robust MRMF in Phase II. The MRMF will be compatible with the evolving Joint Simulation System and Joint Modeling and Simulation System implementation.
