Paper Abstract

This paper is intended to familiarize the sensor design engineer with the capabilities of distributed interactive simulation (DIS) to support the design and test of sensor system. We define DIS terms and then discuss what DIS does to support the design and development process. Fist, DIS provides access to reusable simulation and network components that reduce the cost of tests. Second, it makes user personnel available to interact in the simulation without the expense of bringing the participants to the test site. Third, DIS has reusable computer- generated forces that provide the engineer with sufficient threats and friendlies to load the sensor system in an affordable exercise. Examples of how an engineer would design a study to take advantage of DIS capabilities are provided.
