Abstract : This paper identifies the protocol extensions to SIMNET 6.6.1 developed by Loral Defense Systems-Akron for Armstrong Labs at Williams AFB. The protocol extensions were designed to support the unique requirements of air to air combat involving heterogeneous simulators. Five protocol data units (PDU's) were modified by the addition of new data fields: Activate Request, Deactivate Request , Vehicle Appearance, Fire and Impact. These PDU's and their new fields are described in the body of the text. Three completely new PDU's were added. They are: Radar, Emitter and Freeze. The Radar PDU describes describes a radar and lists the vehicles being illuminated. The Emitter PDU describes all emitters that are not radars. The Freeze (Unfreeze) PDU's, control vehicle activation individually or globally. This allows an entire scenario to be controlled/synchronized from a single location.
