Paper Abstract

The Joint Modeling And Simulation System (JMASS) is a Tri-Service simulation environment that supports engineering and engagement-level simulations. As JMASS is expanded to support other Tri-Service domains, the current set of modeling services must be expanded for High Performance Computing (HPC) applications by adding support for advanced time-management algorithms, parallel and distributed topologies, and high speed communications. By providing support for these services, JMASS can better address modeling domains requiring parallel computationally intense calculations such clutter, vulnerability and lethality calculations, and underwater-based scenarios. A risk reduction effort implementing some HPC services for JMASS using the SPEEDES (Synchronous Parallel Environment for Emulation and Discrete Event Simulation) Simulation Framework has recently concluded. As an artifact of the JMASS-SPEEDES integration, not only can HPC functionality be brought to the JMASS program through SPEEDES, but an additional HLA-based capability can be demonstrated that further addresses interoperability issues. The JMASS-SPEEDES integration provided a means of adding HLA capability to preexisting JMASS scenarios through an implementation of the standard JMASS port communication mechanism that allows players to communicate.
