An Accurate, Scalable, Communication Effects Servers for the FCS System of Sytems Simulation Environment
QualNet Network Simulator used to evaluate the performance of the CES
The ultimate objective of the FCS CES is to support real-time simulation of wireless networks with very large numbers of communicating devices at a sufficiently high level of accuracy that the simulation can interoperate with both physical test articles and human participants
See the whitepaper to learn the key design attributes of why QualNet was chosen:
Modular interfaces among protocol stack layers to support detailed, accurate models throughout the protocol stack, including the physical layer
Transparent parallel execution of network simulation models on diverse parallel architecture, including shared-memory multiprocessors, distributed memory multi-computers, and cluster computers
Well-defined external interfaces to support inter-operability (via DIS, HLA, or socket connections) with other software
Key Features of QualNet
Faster speed enables model developers and network designers to run multiple "what-if" analyses.
Our QualNet network simulation tool can model large networks with high fidelity.
