This proposal examines innovative approaches and technologies that can be used to evaluate legacy models and simulations, determine the feasibility of porting them to multi-core simulation environments, and enable the legacy model capabilities to efficiently execute in such multi-core environments. We will employ Discrete Event System Specification (DEVS) Simulator architectures to support highly parallel, large-scale multi-core execution of composed models. Extensive DEVS theory will allow us to formulate methods for mapping legacy compositions into such Simulator platforms, as well as to predict the limits of legacy performance, enabling a user to determine objectively whether trying to compose a set of legacy simulations is worthwhile, or whether it is better to refactor/ reengineer legacy simulations for multi-core execution. Approved for Public Release 14-MDA-7663 (8 January 14)
