A Common Chemical, Biological & Radiological modelling capability: UK and NATO HLA-Evolved experimentation

ABSTRACT: The United Kingdom (UK) Ministry of Defence’s (MOD) Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) have sponsored two key development activities relating to the OneSAF Computer Generated Forces (CGF) system and development of a Common Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) modelling capability. The first is an interface to enable OneSAF to operate in a High Level Architecture (HLA) 1516-2010 (HLA Evolved) federation.

The second is an extension to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) Education and Training Network (NETN) Federation Object Model (FOM) to support CBR interoperability. This acts as an enabler for CBR M&S services to be provided to Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) simulation systems by a common CBR modelling capability. Although individually these two developments have much broader application, this paper presents a use case bringing the two together to demonstrate CBR federate interoperability with OneSAF and how this has been standardised, developed and experimented using support from the NATO Modelling and Simulation Community
