IEEE Standard 1278.1TM-2012, Standard for Distributed Interactive Simulation--Application Protocols, is part of a set of standards and recommended practices for DIS applications. Each standard and recommended practice in the set describes one or more of the elements that constitute the DIS environment. As a whole, the set of standards and recommended practices defines an interoperable simulation environment. This particular standard addresses the application protocols.
This PDG will implement a set of changes to IEEE Standard for Distributed Interactive Simulation—Application Protocols, IEEE Std 1278.1TM-2012 based on the evolving needs and requirements of the current DIS user community.
