Abstract
Version 1.3 of the High Level Architecture (HLA) specification was developed by the Defence Modeling and Simulation Office (DMSO) in the 1990s. A more robust standard, IEEE 1516, was proposed in 2000. Defence R&D Canada – Atlantic’s (DRDC Atlantic’s) current strategic focus dictates a move towards the newer standard, to allow the Virtual Combat Systems (VCS) group to take advantage of newer tools and an expanded application programming interface (API). This document describes the differences between HLA 1.3 and IEEE 1516, and the steps required to migrate a federate from 1.3 to 1516. As well, it describes the Polka 2.0 framework, which is a tool used to develop federates that are both version- and vendor-independent.
