Abstract
The primary objective was to initiate the development of a test-bed to support the investigation of ground control stations and simulation of uninhabited air vehicles (UAV). The test-bed is eventually to interact with a synthetic environment that is linked to constructive simulators, other virtual simualtors, electronic databases, sensor simulations, and real or simulated command and control stations. Work was divided into a preliminary study of available commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products that might optimize the development process and into development of a major building block of the UAV test-bed, a simulation of the UAV ground control station (GCS). This document describes the market survey of distributed simulation and associated visual simulation products, as well as development of the prototype of the ground control station simulator. These descriptions and recommendations are intended to serve as a reference for yet further develpment in the context of the UAV test-bed.
