Simulation experts from Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) and Mil 3 Inc., both of Washington, are working together to speed simulation execution, and to enable military simulations to interact with one another over networks. Mil 3 experts are giving their flagship Opnet Modeler the capability to run one simulation on parallel architectures. They also will incorporate a proprietary algorithm for parallel simulation into Opnet Modeler to improve simulation execution speed, company officials say. In addition, SAIC and Mil 3 experts will update Opnet to make it compatible with the U.S. Department of Defense High-Level Architecture (HLA) standard, which enables designers to distribute simulations across a network, and to work with other HLA-compliant tools. For more information, phone Mil 3`s Michael Powers at 202-364-4700, ext. 2700, or SAIC`s Jane Van Ryan at 202-661-8903. - J.K.
