Abstract
Interlinked Software for Achieving Analogous Control (ISAAC) offers capability to link geographically disparate N-DOF test beds to facilitate real-time distributed operations. ISAAC is an evolution of an existing distributed simulation architecture used extensively by the US Navy in multiple laboratories implementing a robust, stable, real-time, and deterministic architecture. Adaptation to existing laboratory conditions is provided through the abstraction of simulation requirements. Control, configuration, data fusion, system state propagation, visualization, and other necessary functions are provided as pluggable components. Development is scheduled and resources allocated to satisfy the delivery schedule of an ongoing DARPA program. A relevant laboratory with hardware in the loop is available for verifying and validating ISAAC performance. Systems integration and configuration procedures are documented in various media and provided with each evolutionary software release. Investigation of approaches for reconstructing full dynamics from multiple reduced-order dynamic systems while maintaining dynamic control stability is undertaken. Techniques for combining the data from multiple simulations are characterized, verified and validated. Lessons learned are integrated into the ISAAC development plan and tested on hardware.
