Step by step, ROU NAT SIMNET
will expand towards Romanian Armed Forces Units and other training structures, like Air Forces Simulation Center, Secondary Training Centers, Military Academies and so on.
Since the introduction of SIMNET
, all major simulation systems, both virtual immersive systems and constructive wargames, have been developed as networked devices that can inter-operate with other simulations to create a larger and richer representation of the battlespace.
The development of technology for collective training: SIMNET
, a case history.
For the Army, the investment in SIMNET
has multiple returns, not the least of which is the reduced costs of training tank crews: The cost of driving an M1 tank for 1 kilometer is about $90; a SIMNET
unit can be run for an hour for about $5, over many kilometers of virtual terrain.
The Engineering and Maintenance Services Division current projects include worldwide support for SIMNET
, the U.
DIS, as a follow-on to the SIMNET
program, was originally oriented toward ground-based training exercises.
Bernd Lemaitre, Director Business Development of MunEDA, will be invited key note speaker of the SIMNET
Styria workshop in Graz/Austria at Sep 09-10, 2010, and give the talk "Statistics in Semiconductor".
The Engineering and Maintenance Services Division currently is supporting SIMNET
, a military specific battlefield simulation and training network.
It has taken a lead role in the development of SIMNET
(the precursor of DIS), and its battle labs have explored DIS-related simulation technologies.
The Army, for example, has made significant strides in simulator-based training through its Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) and SIMNET
2) The development of necessary protocol and interfaces so that EW simulations all over the world can be linked by SIMNET
, which is now called Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS).
The DARPA-sponsored SIMNET
program is also allowing many trainers located throughout the world to be integrated.
