The National Aerospace Laboratory NLR is the central aerospace research and development organization in the Netherlands, and is actively involved in international simulation projects. In the HPCN project SIMULTAAN, NLR developes a generic scenario management tool named SMARTFED for real-time monitoring and control of networked simulations. The scenario management tool also offers functionalities to define and execute scenarios. This paper describes SMARTFED and its use in networked real-time high performance simulations. The envisaged use of SMARTFED in aerospace applications is illustrated by NLR's DELTA federation.
