Upper-lower computer mode is the main architecture design of the amphibious combat simulation system (ACSS) at present. Through continuous improvement of real-time performance, software and hardware infrastructure, the exponential growth of operational network data scale is realized, but the availability performance of ACSS declines. The reliability of the working host as the key node has become the bottleneck of the overall availability of network nodes in the ACSS. To optimize the network node architecture of ACSS, this paper presents an effective optimization solution by designing the dual redundancy warm-standby module of the mission computer and I/O port, the algorithm of selecting output path of the mission computer in network nodes, the decision-making algorithm upon the on-duty host and output, and the video output decision-making algorithm upon the upper host. Lastly, the complete process of operational data from the input to output and the opposite is implemented well to guarantee the overall availability of network nodes in the ACSS. It has great advantages of wide applicability, strong reliability and high real-time switching speed.
