Title: Simulation for a Coevolved System-of-Systems Meta-Architecture

Abstract

This paper describes a simulation of a system-of-systems for counter-smuggling. The simulation is described and results are provided. The results demonstrate the applicability of the agent based modeling paradigm to understand key factors influencing SoS performance.

  • A distributed, scaleable architecture for the modeling and simulation of Intelligent Transportation Systems on a network of workstations or a parallel computer has been developed at Argonne National Laboratory. The resulting capability provides a modular framework supporting plug-in models, hardware, and live data sources; visually realistic graphics displays to support training and human factors studies; and a set of basic ITS models. The models and capabilities are described, along with atypical scenario involving dynamic rerouting of smart vehicles which send probe reports to and receive traffic advisories from a traffic management center capable of incident detection.
  • DIAS, the Dynamic Information Architecture System, is an object-oriented simulation system that was designed to provide an integrating framework in which new or legacy software applications can operate in a context-driven frame of reference. DIAS provides a flexible and extensible mechanism to allow disparate, and mixed language, software applications to interoperate. DIAS captures the dynamic interplay between different processes or phenomena in the same frame of reference. Finally, DIAS accommodates a broad range of analysis contexts, with widely varying spatial and temporal resolutions and fidelity.
  • Behavioral simulations of data readout architecture based on VME and custom high speed buses show that it is suitable as data acquisition and event building system for high energy physics experiments. This paper describes a reliable but simple auxiliary bus designed to afford asynchronous transactions up to 10 Mtransfers/s, sparse data scan operations and crate-level event building. An intercate connection is also presented to accomplish system level event building and data concentration by means of synchronous transactions of rates up to 10 Mtransfers/s. This architecture has been simulated using Verilog HDL. Preliminary performance estimates are presented and briefly discussed inmore » view of system application in KLOE experiment at the DA{Phi}NE {Phi}-factory in Frascati (Italy).« less
  • As modeling and simulation becomes a more important part of the day-to-day activities in industry and government, organizations are being faced with the vexing problem of how to integrate a growing suite of heterogeneous models both within their own organizations and between organizations. The Argonne National Laboratory, which is operated by the University of Chicago for the United States Department of Energy, has developed the Dynamic Information Architecture System (DIAS) to address such problems. DIAS is an object-oriented, subject domain independent framework that is used to integrate legacy or custom-built models and applications. In this paper we will give anmore » overview of the features of DIAS and give examples of how it has been used to integrate models in a number of applications. We shall also describe some of the key supporting DIAS tools that provide seamless interoperability between models and applications.« less
