Pitch DIS Adapter – an HLA to DIS Gateway

Home » Products » Pitch DIS Adapter – an HLA to DIS Gateway

Integrate Your DIS Applications

Pitch DIS Adapter™ is a bridge between HLA and the DIS IEEE 1278 standard. It enables you to mix simulations that use these two standards in one exercise.

The DIS sides supports newer and older versions, like DIS 4, 5, 6 and 7. The HLA side supports newer and older HLA versions, together with the RPR FOM 2.

Reuse your DIS Systems
Reuse your investments in DIS systems when you start using HLA. Pitch DIS Adapter gives you a flying start when mixing DIS and HLA. It is also increasingly popular to use HLA as the backbone for larger or widely distributed DIS systems. Pitch DIS Adapter gives you connectivity out of the box.
Robust and Scalable
Pitch DIS Adapter handles tens of thousands of PDUs per second. It also has a very fault tolerant conversion between DIS and HLA. As an example, it properly handles translation when the information is incomplete.
Powerful User Interface
Pitch DIS Adapter has a powerful user interface that reduces integration time and risk. Quickly locate issues or missing entities. Statistics is monitored in real time. You can do drill-down analysis in the list of objects and interactions. A log shows all important events and issues during the execution.
