About this book


This invaluable textbook/reference provides a hands-on guide to the application of good software development practices to the construction of distributed simulation systems, with a particular focus on High Level Architecture (HLA). Emphasizing a learning-by-doing approach supported by examples, the text offers practical advice on real-world development issues for all engineers and programmers entering the field.

Topics and features:

  • Explains how to rapidly develop an HLA federation, offering an implemented sample for each service area of the HLA federate interface specification
  • Describes this implementation using the freely available software tools SimGe and RACoN
  • Provides numerous step-by-step examples, code snippets, and case studies, as well as links to downloadable sample source code
  • Uses the Microsoft .NET platform and the C# programming language in all examples and case studies
  • Includes review questions throughout the book for further study
  • Examines not only federate application development, but also object model construction
  • Discusses the employment of HLA in multi-agent simulations

Providing an accessible introduction and all-in-one resource for HLA-based distributed simulation development, this book is an essential guide for students and practitioners training in distributed simulation and distributed interactive simulation.
