Paper Abstract

Simulation Networking (SIMNET) developed a set of paradigms for distributed interactive simulation (DIS) architectures. Designed for computer systems in the mid 1980s, they have proven to be quite successful for the exercises they supported. But as technology advances, the capability and desire to increase the size and scope of the exercises continues to grow. In order to do this, some of the basic tenets of the architecture need to be redesigned. In this paper we take a look at three of the fundamental limitations affecting scalability: networks, environmental databases, and processing power.
