USAF Simulation Program Office and AFAMS is looking for solutions to solve the simulation interoperability problem. USAF simulators are typically independently developed by different vendors, some which use proprietary methods to meet their requirements. Often times, this results in a product that works excellent on its own but does not play nice with others. One-off integrations of any two systems end up being costly to develop and to maintain. The Simulators Program Office (SPO) is looking for solutions which allow the gaming environments to synchronize and display the same data, visuals and other artifacts while considering security classification guidance across platforms. The SPO also needs the solution to support networked operations with our partner nations. RTI has already investigated the feature gaps to facilitate simulator interoperability. We propose to leverage our TRL-9 open standards communications framework to develop a solution at a far lower cost than starting from scratch. Our solution will focus on creating open data models to facilitate data exchange, a developer SDK for open extensibility, and management services to enable the USAF to connect up, manage, and monitor distributed simulations.
