New International Standard for Federation Engineering Agreements Template (FEAT)
ORLANDO, FLORIDA, November 15, 2013 – The Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) announces a new international standard for use by distributed simulation event architecture engineers. The new “Standard for Federation Engineering Agreements Template (FEAT)” (SISO-STD-012-2013) was approved on September 3, 2013.
Federation agreements are critical to the successful design, execution, and reuse of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) assets in distributed simulations. FEAT provides a standardized format for recording those agreements to increase their usability and reuse. FEAT provides a methodology, format, and “electronic to-do list” to account for and record design, modeling, data, management, and other agreements across the federation engineering lifecycle. The FEAT eXtensible Markup Language (XML) schema facilitates the Distributed Simulation Engineering and Execution Process (DSEEP) for distributed simulation environments. FEAT is simulation domain agnostic, which makes it useful to all types of distributed simulation events (e.g., test, experimentation, training, etc.).
FEAT will benefit all developers, managers, and users of distributed simulations by providing an unambiguous format for recording agreements across the DSEEP concerning the design and use of distributed simulations. The template will also benefit this community by enabling the development of federation engineering tools that can read the schema and perform federation engineering tasks automatically.
SISO-STD-012-2013 was developed under the United States Department of Defense M&S Steering Committee-endorsed High Level Task for the Live Virtual Constructive Architecture Roadmap. According to Dr. Gary Allen, DoD M&S Coordination Office Associate Director for Data, the benefits for members of the M&S community who will use this standard include: 1) shortening the time it takes to design a distributed simulation event; 2) reducing error rates; 3) providing the capability for collaboration and consistency in design; and 4) providing better repetition (i.e., users will have an electronic copy to rerun a simulation event).

IEEE Standard 1730.1™ Published - Friday, November 1, 2013
A Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO)-developed standard for distributed simulations implementing multiple architectures was published by the IEEE Standards Association on November 1, 2013.
The U.S. Department of Defense and North Atlantic Treaty Organization member nations use simulations in their day-to-day operations to conduct war games, systems design and acquisition, experiments, analyses, exercises, test and evaluation, and training both across the room and across the world. Individual simulations developed using different architectures (e.g., IEEE 1516 series, High Level Architecture and IEEE 1278 series, Distributed Interactive Simulation) are often linked together to accomplish operational needs. Linking simulations using multiple architectures requires thoughtful engineering and execution to ensure the reality portrayed remains true. IEEE 1730.1™, Recommended Practice for Distributed Simulation Engineering and Execution Process Multi-Architecture Overlay (DMAO), provides program managers and engineers with the guidance needed to create credible multi-architecture distributed simulation environments by identifying the specific technical issues associated with multi-architecture environments and providing guidance to effectively address those issues.
IEEE 1730.1™ is a companion to IEEE 1730™, Recommended Practice for Distributed Simulation Engineering and Execution Process (DSEEP). Both standards are available thru the IEEE Standards Store at http://www.techstreet.com/ieee/products/.
