During this webinar, Finkleman describes an approach to collaborating time-evolving physical simulations with event-driven link through application layer network simulations. Dedicated physical layer simulations represent physical objects and phenomena much better than most widely used network simulations. Network simulation architecture almost always favors wired networks, relatively static, or statistically mobile wireless environments. Faithful descriptions of physical layer interactions are particularly significant when physical phenomena occur on time scales comparable with or less than network transactions. Such co-simulation is also important when objects that generate communication events are created during a scenario. Staging events associated with satellite launches are one example.
This webinar reviews:
- conceptual difficulties that accompany different levels of co-simulation;
- complications from different computational architectures and object taxonomies;
- demonstrations of co-simulation using STK and Qualnet.
