Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) has been developing a low cost means to evaluate the integration ofnew display equipment for the Air Force. The result has been the Aircraft Crewstation Demonstrator (ACD), which is capable of simulating the cockpit of an aircraft for human factors evaluation (HFE). In order to support future display upgrades within the cockpit of the CF-18, DRDC contracted an HFE study of the CF-18 displays, especially the radar displays associated with radar and data link. Earlier work at the Defence Research Establishment Ottawa (DREO) had resulted in a high fidelity simulation of the air to air modes of a fighter radar. In order to develo as representative display as possible, a task to integrate the ACD with the DREO radar simulation as a distributed simulation was included with the HFE study. This report describes the use of the high level architecture (HLA) to combine these two disparate simulations into one distributed simulation. The results indicate that HLA is an effective means of combining different models to provide an improved simulation to the user. Advantages and limitations are discussed, as is a proposed future architecture.
