FEAT PSG - Federation Engineering Agreements Template
The Federation Engineering Agreements Template (FEAT) benefits all developers, managers, and users of distributed simulations by providing an unambiguous format for recording agreements about the design and use of the distributed simulation. The FEAT also benefits this community by enabling the development of federation engineering tools that can read the XML schema and perform federation engineering tasks automatically.
The FEAT Product Support Group (PSG) is a support group chartered by the SISO SAC to support the FEAT schema and associated reference products such as examples of application of the schema. The FEAT PSG supports the distributed simulation community by acting as a forum and library for FEAT-related information; providing technical support to users and developers by answering questions; and providing contact information for experts in different areas.
JHU/APL has developed a FEAT Editor, a Java-based tool to simplify development of federation agreements conformant with the XML schema.
SISO members interested in joining the FEAT PSG should submit their affiliation information below and subscribe the the FEAT PSG reflector -
The current version of the schema and comments against it can be found at the bottom of this page. PSG members may submit new comments for consideration by the PSG.
