Towards a Formal Standard for Interoperability in M&S/System of Systems Integration
Modeling and Simulation (M&S) is finding increasing application in development and testing of command and control systems comprised of information-intensive component systems. In this paper, the authors apply a System of Systems (SoS) perspective on the integration of M&S with such systems. They employ recently developed interoperability concepts based on linguistic categories along with the Discrete Event System Specification formalism to propose a standard for interoperability. They will show how the developed standard is implemented in DEVS/SOA net-centric modeling and simulation framework.
