AN ANALYSIS AND COMPARISON OF DISTRIBUTED OPTIMISTIC TIME SIMULATION USING THE SPEEDES AND WARP IV SIMULATORS

by BRAND, JESSE EDWARD

Abstract (Summary)
At the United States Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) distributed discrete event simulation (DDES) is vital to the creation and testing of new technology in areas from flight characteristics of unmanned air vehicles (UAV) to the communications a missile uses to adapt to a moving target. The evaluation of AFRL’s distributed simulator SPEEDES (Synchronous Parallel Environment for Emulation and Discrete Event Simulation) against WarpIV, another commercial distributed simulator, analyzes the performance of these simulators under varying conditions. The conditions are created by an adjustable model that was created to mimic the intense mathematical calculations required for the simulation of an aircraft’s aerodynamics. The raw data retrieved from the adjustable model consisted of total execution times. Statistical analysis is performed on the data to compare the total execution times of SPEEDES to the total execution times of WarpIV.
