Abstract

HLA-based distributed simulation has no mechanisms for managing execution according to the dynamically changing conditions of computing resources and no implementation with dynamical discovery. Grid Computing is designed to coordinate resources that are not subject to centralized control. We present the design of a system supporting execution of HLA-based Parallel and Distributed Simulation (PADS) on the Grid Computing Environment. Firstly, we focus on the architecture of Distributed Interactive Simulation on the Grid (DISG). The architecture definition consists of descriptions of functionality of new tools and Grid Services and indicates where interfaces should be described. We present a model of Virtual Battlefield Attack-Defense Countermeasure Simulation (VBADCS) on the Grid. This model describes how to plug HLA/RTI simulations into the Grid Services framework. Finally, we give an experimental instance of DISG to validate the feasibility and examine the performance of the key techniques of DISG.
