MetadataShow full item record
NPSNET-MES provides realistic semi-automated forces (SAF) for interactive play in the three dimensional visual simulator NPSNET. NPSNET-MES consists of two components, the first component is a path generation module that determines the SAF route and mission based upon SAF controller input. this module generates multiple segment paths based on obstacle avoidance. The second component is a vehicle controller module that uses the programmable network harness, NPSNET-NET, to multicast data packets via the Ethernet to control the SAF vehicles during the simulation. NPSNET-MES integrates SAF into the existing system NPSNET. NPSNET-MES fulfills a real need to networking simulation to populate the battlefield simulation with semi-automated forces.
