Abstract : Armstrong Laboratory's Multi-ship Research and Development (MULTIRAD) program is an effort to design, develop and test a low-cost, flexible multiplayer simulation system with a great degree of training utility. The MULTIRAD system is based on distributed, low cost, microprocessor based simulation including local and long haul networks. Armstrong Laboratory's MULTIRAD development will integrate aircrew training simulators with a combat environment and exercise control functions on an asynchronous network based upon the SIMNET version 6.6 protocol with extensions. The F-l5 Training Requirements Utility Evaluation (TRUE) is a test of the training potential of the MULTIRAD system. As part of the F-15 TRUE, the MULTIRAD network will be monitored and its performance evaluated. For TRUE the local area network (LAN) will incorporate: Two McDonnel Douglas Reconfigurable Cockpits (MDRC) configured as F-l5C MSIP cockpits, A Ground Control Intercept (GCI) station, Two Combat Engagement Trainers (CET) configured as F-l6Cs, An Automated Threat Environment Simulator (ATES), An Exercise Control Station, A Data Logger For the long haul portion of TRUE. The network will be connected to the Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA) facility in Alexandria, Virginia where an F-l5 Combat Tactics Trainer (CTT) and GCI station will be added to the network. The purpose of this study plan is to document the F-15 TRUE Network Performance Evaluation Plan. This plan has the following objectives: a). Perform real-time monitoring of network traffic b). Identify packet type, source of packet, and destination of packet c).
