  • Summary
the lvc architecture issue
The LVC Architecture Issue
  • Current LVC environments are not inherently interoperable. 
    • High Level Architecture (HLA) and Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) are most often used for integrating virtual and constructive assets
    • Test & Training Enabling Architecture (TENA) is widely used in testing and to integrate live assets into exercises/events.
    • Common Training Instrumentation Architecture (CTIA) promotes commonality among the U.S. Army's instrumented ranges and home stations; LVC - Integrated Architecture (LVC-IA) is next-generation Army multi-echelon, integrated, joint, training and mission rehearsal environment;
  • Multiple protocols, gateways, and object models are often used to bring an LVC Environment together. 
    • Interoperability and efficiency issues arise when bringing disparate protocols and entities together in a common operational environment.
    • Complexity, disconnects, duplication of effort, risk, and costs increase with multiple architectures/protocols/gateways.

Four communities agree; critical review needed to develop way forward for efficient, effective interoperability.

what we are doing
What we are doing
  • Developing a recommended plan (way forward) regarding LVC interoperability across three broad areas of research:
    • Desired future technical architecture(s)
    • Desired business model(s)
    • Manner in which standards should be evolved and compliance evaluated
  • The plan will provide:
    • Rationale for recommendations, citing the findings on which they are based
    • An assessment of how any LVC architecture policy change might impact the user communities, with recommendations on strategies to promote new direction and minimize impact
    • Recommended next steps (e.g., further study/analysis, experiments, prototyping any new architecture)

Develop an LVC Architecture Plan

Summary

  • Statement of Relevance: The LVC architecture study will provide a cross community/domain analysis of LVC architecture interoperability requirements and capabilities, and a systems engineering analysis of alternatives with an eye towards developing a strategic vision on how to best organize around the Global Information Grid and Net-Centric Data Strategy.
    • Interoperate with operational IT environments supporting our Warfighters– Provide architecture vision from where we are today toward where we should be at full instantiation of the GIG.
    • Accelerate Adoption of LVC Interoperability – Provide sufficient guidance to allow program managers to make decisions affecting the interoperability and conformance of their architectures and systems.
    • Reduction of Risk – Provide a risk mitigation strategy for programs that have requirements to interoperate in an LVC environment with common architectures
    • Cost & Time Savings– Provide efficient LVC architecture interoperability recommendations to support rapid federation design through best practices.

DEFINITIONS
  • Live Domain – The domain where live participants operate operational systems and platforms (including their full range of mobility) in the physical environment.
  • Virtual Domain – The domain where live participants operate simulators/emulators/operational systems in a synthetic environment.
  • Constructive Domain – The domain where live participants, typically command and staff trainees, conduct activities in an environment constituted by a large scale constructive synthetic environment (simulation). The trainees provide stimulus to simulated forces at all levels and act upon consequences generated by the simulation.
