Abstract
The ISSAC Team propose a novel method to encapsulate legacy models and simulations that allows these components to take advantage of modern, multi-core, multi-processor hardware suites. Encapsulating these legacy codes provides 3 primary advantages to deal with complex systems and systems of systems (Air Force, Navy, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as well as commercial entities who deal with complex systems and systems of systems comprising integrated, independent systems each with their own local governance. First, the encapsulation strategy proposed by the ISSAC Team reduces the cost and lengthy timelines of component representation composition and integration and makes these representations hardware agnostic. Second, the strategy of the ISSAC Team provides significant reductions in execution times as multiple scenarios can be run in parallel, increasing the parametric variations that must be explored to truly understand the performance and behavior of large-scale, complex systems. Third, the strategy and technology of the ISSAC Team provides mechanisms to address multiple uses while reducing verification and validation time and off-loading requirements from component representation developers.
