This project proposes the development and integration of two different software models for the same object; a high fidelity and a low fidelity model, which can be interchanged within the DARPA Weapon Generation Tool. Using validated engineering models in Distributed Simulation experiments provides users with a higher degree of realism in the cures that are produced by the simulation. Not all models must be at this level of fidelity, however. Great cost savings are relaized when the model used is at a suitable level of fidelity for the task at hand. Mak Technologies has developed a basic Weapon Generaion Tool (WGT) which allows software modules to be interchanged. This will be the basis for a tradeoff study between high and low fidelity software modules. Creare will develop two different fidelity models with standard interfaces to be compared within WGT. The goal of Phase I is to test the feasbility of swapping different fidelity models, and Phase II will begin the task of evaluation of different models within Distributed Simulation experiments. ANTICIPATED BENEFITS: The commercial applications of this techonology are: automobile simulation tradeoff studies, aircraft simulation tradeoff studies, video game generation, and object-oriented Database management.
