Abstract

Missile Defense Agency seeks to develop a design and a concept of operations to streamline simulation integration.CESI proposes research to adapt previously developed test harness technology to Missile Defense Agency simulations in Phase I and to demonstrate the efficacy of this approach.Essentially our approach involves a test harness that simulation federates can connect to that provides the oracle for interactions between federates.The test harness goes well beyond merely checking for message protocol compliance and can be used to verify that simulation federates behave properly when stimulated.We describe proposed research on a finite-state-machine or sequence-diagram approach to describing proper simulation behavior that will enable the rapid creation of behavior tests.This enables the disparate developers to pre-integrate their systems prior to arriving at a large, expensive integration event or experiment.The details of our proposal are described after a brief discussion of our approach to applying this methodology to solving similar problems for the Armys live virtual constructive integrating architecture (LVC-IA).
