The purpose of the LVC Study Group is to explore and discuss issues related to interoperability among Live, Virtual, and Constructive systems. This group operates in parallel with the US DoD's LVC Architecture Roadmap Study; and one of the goals of the SISO SG is to provide feedback and input to the DoD Study on behalf of the SISO community.
Like the DoD Study, our SISO SG will be looking at LVC Interoperability from three perspectives: Technical Issues, Business Model Issues, and Standards Management Issues. Among our topics of discussion will be:
- Pros and cons of current approaches to LVC interoperability (Gateways, Bridges, etc.)
- Strengths and weaknesses of various current interoperability architectures, such as DIS, HLA, and TENA, from the three perspectives described above
- Ideas for how to best achieve LVC Interoperability going forward (Is it possible to choose one of current architectures across domains? Does "architecture convergence" make sense? etc.)
