Building Multiple Resolution Modeling Systems Using the High-Level Architecture 2019-01-1917
The modeling and simulation pyramid in defense states it clearly: Multi-Level modeling and simulation are required. Models and simulations are often classified by the US Department of Defense into four levels—campaign, mission, engagement, and engineering. Campaign simulation models are applied for evaluation; mission-level simulations to experiment with the integration of several macro agents; engagement simulations in engineered systems development; and engineering-level simulation models with a solid foundation in structural physics and components. Models operating at one level must be able to interact with models at another level. Therefore, the cure (“silver bullet”) is very clear: a comprehensive framework for Multiple Resolution Modeling (MRM) is needed.
In this paper, we discuss our research about how to construct MRM environments. Also, the utilization of the High-Level Architecture (HLA) is explained and in particular, the processes of verification and validation in these composite models. Three implementations in the areas of aerospace, navy ships, and infantry combat are utilized to illustrate the MRM simulation concepts.
