Abstract : This report describes the participation of Armstrong Laboratory's Aircrew Training Research Division in the Warfighter95 (WF95) Technical Integration Evaluation (TIE) which was held 4 and 5 December 1995. Other participants included representatives from the Air Force, Army, and Navy. The TIE bad three main objectives: (a) to test the WP95 architecture, including connectivity issues and the merging of multiple simulations; (b) to evaluate the enhancements offered by advanced distributed simulation technology; including linking operational and tactical levels of simulation and using simulation to drive real-world systems; and (c) to record lessons learned. The nine participating sites were located throughout the continental United States, and were interconnected via a communications network the WF95 TIE resulted in several significant technological achievements, including upgrading the Air Warfare Simulation (AWSIM) constructive simulation to be compatible with Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) protocols and stimulating command and control equipment with simulation data.
