Abstract : The intent of this report is to document the successful testing of some RASSP products produced on the Navy monitored DARPA/Tri-Service Lockheed Sanders RASSP contract and to document the process of porting a Ptolemy-based simulation between two sites. It is beneficial to have this capability to build on and reuse previous simulations and designs done by supporting institutions and to learn from others' work with the goal of decreasing development times and not repeating work already done. The process used to port an infrared search and track (IRST) simulation between two sites is explained as well as the design environment in which the simulation was built, Ptolemy. The difficulties encountered in porting this particular simulation between these two sites are explained. Some implications regarding the porting process and its future use are drawn from the knowledge gained from this endeavor. In conclusion, the simulation was successfully ported between the two sites.
