Communication services to support information exchange between simulation applications participating in the Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) environment are defined. These communication services describe a connectionless information transfer that supports real-time, as well as non-real-time, exchange. Several communication profiles specifying communication services are provided.

This standard is part of a proposed set of standards for DIS applications. Each standard in the proposed set describes one or more of the several elements that constitute the DIS environment. As a whole, the set of standards will define an interoperable simulated battle environment. This particular standard addresses the communications services to be used to support distributed interactive simulation appplications. This standard defines the requirements for the communication services to be used to support DIS applications. This standard also provides two communication profiles which adhere to the service requirements.
Communication requirements for interactive simulations are not currently covered by standards. In fulfilling this need, the working group will also define and recommend an overall action plan to clarify and improve industry understanding for distributed interactive communication requirements.
