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.

NPSNET: an accurate low-cost technique for real-time display of transient events: vehicle collisions, explosions and terrain modifications Osborne, William Dale. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-09);This work concentrates on a method for real-time collision detection and how to resolve that collision when it had occurred. The results of this effort are only a small part of the overall system, NPSNET. The collision ...
