Multi-Simulator Interface - Application that connects simulations together by synchronizing their clocks and data
Version: 1.16.0Multi-Simulator Interface (MSI) is a simulation interconnection engine. In other words it is a program that connects simulations together by synchronizing their clocks and data.
Operating System: Mac OS X
The MSI serves the same purpose as HLA and supports most of HLA's functionality (and more). The MSI is an HLA alternative.The major motivating factors in the design of the MSI are interoperability, speed, and ease of use.
The MSI was written as a cutting edge distributed simulation component to connect multiple instances of ATL's premiere simulation software, CSIM, and it can be used to interface any compatible simulations.
MSI allows simulations/federates to send messages (interactions in HLA) to each other. These messages can contain multiple attributes and be multicast to a specific group of simulations.
