Engineers at Sparta in Laguna Hills, Calif., needed a object-oriented software tool for the U.S. Army STRICOM Advanced Tactical Engagement Simulations (A-TES)/Science & Technology Objective (STO) research program.

The OSim Framework from OriginalSim in Montreal, met their needs and will be the principal simulation development tool in the program.

SPARTA engineers will use OSim Framework to develop a virtual simulation test bed to address the program`s challenge of enabling training and testing of emerging smart, indirect, and top-attack weapons.

"OSim Framework has consistently proven to be a powerful, cost-effective solution for integrated simulation development," says James W. Watson, manager, Distributed Simulation and Software Operation at SPARTA in Orlando, Fla. "Thanks also in part to the application`s HLA-compliant architecture, our involvement in the A-TES/STO research program has been undoubtedly strengthened with OSim Framework as our principal simulation development tool."

OSim Framework will help SPARTA experts and the A-TES/STO team develop affordable system solutions that minimize the impact of force modernization on the communications bandwidth requirements, system power, weight, and packaging of test and training systems, OriginalSim officials say.

OSim Framework will also ensure that all simulation applications created will comply with the U.S. Department of Defense High Level Architecture (HLA) standard.

OSim Framework is a collaborative framework for the rapid development and deployment of interoperable simulation applications. The distributed OSim architecture enables multi-user collaborative development of simulation applications compliant with critical defense and commercial technology standards such as HLA. — J.M.
