Abstract
The HLA framework has not addressed the significant issues of a heterogeneous operating environment in terms of security and high levels of scalability. Currently, all participants must have a minimum clearance as dictated by the simulated scenario. Even one small piece of a simulation, even a single entity, can cause an entire simulation to be inaccessible to a large group lacking the needed clearance. Furthermore, only a small number of entities can be involved in a simulation before the network traffic prohibits any real time interaction, modeling, and training. Cybernet Systems, with Ball Aerospace, proposes to design and demonstrate a mechanism, an extension, to the HLA that allows massive numbers of federations of differing clearance levels to interact in the same simulation environment by automatically filtering and modifying data that should not be seen by those with inadequate clearance. We call this the Mutli-Domain Distributed Mission Simulation Enterprise (MDDMSE). It includes the tools to allow simulation developers to specify clearance needed on a sub-entity level, methods for scaling simulations to thousands and hundreds of thousands of entities, a method for sending and receiving data to and from different simulations, and an executive control and visualization system.
