Abstract
This document describes the design for a software framework that will make development of High Level Architecture (HLA) federates faster, and much easier for programmers new to HLA. The motivation for this comes out of our own experience here at Defence Research and Development Canada – Atlantic (DRDC Atlantic), and while supporting various units of the Canadian Armed Forces. The design concept is multi-layered, with two fundamental modules providing a foundation for federate development. The first is an abstraction layer that appears to developers as if it were an HLA evolved compliant run time infrastructure (RTI). While not an RTI this layer translates from HLA evolved to older versions of HLA, and hides vendor implementation quirks. The second module is a Federation Object Model (FOM) library design which is meant to form the basis for code generated automatically from extensible mark-up language (XML) FOM files. This design is the basis for the code being implemented by the open source HLAgile project on SourceForge.
