Abstract : The Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), in an effort to improve military simulations, has proposed a standard for Distribiited Interactive Simulation (DIS). This network protocol will allow dissimilar applications to communicate simulation information. In the field of air combat, this will allow pilots in remote simulators to fly in a common simulation. The success of this standard is dependent on applications being able to work within that standard, as well as a large variety of Computer Generated Forces (CGFs) to complement interactive forces. CGFs are needed to help simulate the large combat scenarios that can only occur in wartime. By augmenting human forces with large numbers of computer forces, these large combat scenarios can be created and tested without involving a proportionately large number of people.
