The three SISO Standards Products proposed to be produced comprise a family of three specifications, one each for three different eXtensible Markup Language (XML)-based formal languages, used by both developers and users of Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) environments during gateway selection and configuration. Each specification reflects a different aspect of the overarching process of gateway selection and configuration. The description of these languages is as follows:
Gateway Description Language (GDL)
A common human-readable and machine-readable format/syntax for describing both user gateway requirements and the capabilities that individual gateways can offer to users. GDL also includes gateway performance information.
Simulation Data Exchange Model (SDEM) Mapping Language (SML) - A non-gateway specific human-readable and machine-readable format/syntax for describing architecture/SDEM element mappings and any necessary transforms (e.g., units, coordinate systems).
Gateway Filtering Language (GFL) - A common human-readable and machine-readable format/syntax for capturing the traffic filtering details of a gateway.
