Guest editorial—Simulation for training: foundations and techniques
Osman Balci
Pages: 291-292
DOI: 10.1145/259207.259208

Performance and reliability analysis of relevance filtering for scalable distributed interactive simulation
Mostafa A. Bassiouni, Ming-Hsing Chiu, Margaret Loper, Michael Garnsey, Jim Williams
Pages: 293-331
DOI: 10.1145/259207.259209
Achieving the real-time linkage among multiple, geographically-distant, local area networks that support distributed interactive simulation (DIS) requires tremendous bandwidth and communication resources. Today, meeting the bandwidth and...

Terrain database interoperability issues in training with distributed interactive simulation
Guy A. Schiavone, S. Sureshchandran, Kenneth C. Hardis
Pages: 332-367
DOI: 10.1145/259207.259221
In Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS), each participating node is responsible for maintaining its own model of the synthetic environment. Problems may arise if significant inconsistencies are allowed to exist between these separate world...

Consistency maintenance in multiresolution simulation
Paul F. Reynolds, Jr., Anand Natrajan, Sudhir Srinivasan
Pages: 368-392
DOI: 10.1145/259207.259235
Simulations that run at multiple levels of resolution often encounter consistency problems because of insufficient correlation between the attributes at multiple levels of the same entity. Inconsistency may occur despite the existence of valid...

A case study of verification, validation, and accreditation for advanced distributed simulation
Ernest H. Page, Bradford S. Canova, John A. Tufarolo
Pages: 393-424
DOI: 10.1145/259207.259375
The techniques and methodologies for verification and validation of software-based systems have arguably realized their greatest utility within the context of simulation. Advanced Distributed Simulation (ADS), a major initiative within the...
