CIPRNet project

The CIPRNet project [1] uses the following definition:

A federate is single simulation model that interoperates with other simulations in a federation. (source: [Rathnam2004]) b) In the DIESIS context, a federate also refers to the aggregate of a simulator and its specific.


DIESIS project

The DIESIS project [2] gives the following definition:

  • "A single simulation model that interoperates with other simulations in a federation" [3].
  • In the DIESIS context, a federate also refers to the aggregate of a simulator and its specific enhancements, e.g., certain interfaces or middleware.
  • In the HLA context, this could represent one platform (e.g., a cockpit simulator) or could represent an aggregate, like an entire national simulation of air traffic flow.
