Abstract
This federate provides a software gateway from Virtual Maritime Systems Architecture (VMSA) simulations to SIMDIS, the Naval Research Laboratory’s 3D visualization software. The federate can both log VMSA simulations for later viewing with SIMDIS and communicate with SIMDIS for real-time viewing. Since visual representation is not part of VMSA the federate uses an XML dictionary file to relate VMSA Composite Entities (ships, submarines, aircraft, etc) to SIMDIS platforms. The dictionary relates specific entities to particular 3D model files and SIMDIS types. This document describes the federate software and how to integrate the federate into DRDC Atlantic’s VMSA execution system. As well, the software design and technical details are explained. This document covers version 1.0 of the SIMDIS Federate.
