Abstract
"Modeling and simulation (M&S) packages like Matlab and ACSL allow users to create independent executable modules that enable them to more readily engage in what if scenarios. In this document, we propose a flexible M&S visualization system thatfacilitates these types of investigations, allowing the user to make simulation adjustments as the visualization is displayed. We propose a system that allows engineers from multiple disciplines using numerous simulation packages to input data from avariety of sources, both run-time and off-line, in a manner that allows them to examine that data in boundless ways.The architecture should allow for a high degree of flexibility and extensibility, enabling engineers to add multiple types and styles of real-time 2D and 3D visualization methods, different methods and formats of data input, and diverse methods of datamanipulation and processing. This type of flexibility provides utility to engineers at all levels of the design process; each engineer using a common visualization platform.The objective of this Phase I research project is to determine the feasibility and potential effectiveness of this type of system, and if successful, to design a suitable architecture for meeting these goals. Currently, there are a number of popular packages used for modeling and simulation, each with various forms of visualization capabilities. Our aim is to define a new standard for M&S interactive visualization.
