Distributed simulation is a key technology, both for Earth based scenarios such as defense training, as well as for space exploration. There are also SISO standards to match: the Realtime Platform Reference FOM for defense and security and the SpaceFOM for space simulation. But why do we have two standards, what are the differences and are there any similarities?
This presentation was first presented at the SISO 2023 SIMposium by Björn Möller and looks at the history, the use cases, the requirements, and the content of both standards and makes a comparison. It also looks at opportunities for making federations using the two standards work together. Finally, it discusses benefits of, and obstacles for long-term convergence.
