Abstract
Heron Systems Inc. proposes to investigate using an open source implementation of the Data Distribution Service (DDS) as the key middleware for distributed simulation events involving large scale, computer generated scenarios running in real-time with numerous participating laboratories. During Phase I, the primary objectives are to perform a proof-of –concept demonstration, using OpenDDS from Object Computing Inc., and to specify an API for distributed simulation laboratories to use in working with OpenDDS. This API is expected to include a specification for an automated tool capable of generating all the necessary framework classes for a domain participant. Performance metrics will be collected during Phase I comparing results of existing distributed simulation protocol(s) to the same scenario run on an OpenDDS implementation.
