    Distributed interactive simulation (DIS) is a revolutionary development that is changing permanently many features of Defense Department work. The field of warfare modeling and simulation (M&S) is quite large, however, and this paper reviews its evolution and how DIS fits within it. A few things are clear. First, DIS is exceedingly valuable for training. Second, DIS could be a powerful means f... View full abstract»

    As the power and potential to create robust distributed interactive simulation (DIS) environments using the technical principles introduced by the SIMNET project gains recognition, the need for establishing standards for the implementation of these principles has grown dramatically. Initially, the interest in achieving interoperability between many disparate simulation components drove the work in... View full abstract»

    SIMNET was the first successful implementation of large-scale, real-time, man-in-the-loop simulator networking for team training and mission rehearsal in military operations. The paper provides some historical background on how SIMNET was developed within the US Department of Defense, and outlines the key philosophical and architectural principles on which it was based. The SIMNET battlefield simu... View full abstract»

    The paper examines the changes in computer and communications capabilities over the next 10-15 years which are most likely to affect the central components of distributed interactive simulation (DIS): manned simulators, synthetic environments, and semi-automated forces (SAF). Because these components of DIS are currently very resource intensive, improvements in computer and communications capabili... View full abstract»

    For wide-area networking of distributed interactive simulation (DIS) a real-time, resource-reserving, multicast network with appropriate encryption is required. Latency and data volume requirements are described. Standards for DIS communications and their impact on network traffic are explained. Evolutionary history is traced for the current network serving these needs, the Defense Simulation Inte... View full abstract»

    Networked simulation for education and training is discussed as a functional capability though which distributed interactive simulation (DIS) may find application in the non-defense world. Effectiveness of networked simulation in defense education and training applications has yet to be conclusively demonstrated, but studies completed thus far have yielded positive results. Results from non-defens... View full abstract»
