Abstract
In order to meet the rapidly changing requirements for military action, Canada and many of its allies have recognized the utility of modeling and simulation for simulation-based acquisition, training, and operational/tactical experimentation. Canada is looking to High Level Architecture (HLA) to provide the flexibility to model a wide variety of situations, including maritime operations. The Virtual Maritime System Architecture (VMSA) is a viable implementation of the HLA. The initial role of the Virtual Naval Platform (VNP) Group at DRDC Atlantic in either the HLA or the VMSA is to provide motion information for the platform(s) being simulated. This document examines both the HLA and the VMSA architectures in order to determine how best to create motion federates to act in the variety of proposed simulations. After a thorough investigation of the relevant documents describing each architecture, it was determined that the VNP group can develop motion federates for either architecture, but that there are differences in philosophy between the two that will affect the implementation of the motion federate.
