CBA® Domain Features

CBA Vehicular Example
While CBA supports different domains, ZedaSoft’s main focus is in military and commercial aviation research, development and training.

Domain-Specific Features

The following features are specific to the military and civilian vehicle/personnel simulation domain extension to CBA:

  • Pluggable reference systems
  • Built-in Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) v6 network support
  • Device I/O application for interfacing hardware, itself extensible via device-specific plug-ins
  • Large set of constructive entities
  • High fidelity entities for human-in-the-loop

Domain-Specific Benefits

  • XML-driven Fractal Containment makes it simple to switch out models of varying fidelities to support "what if" experiments, accommodate different security levels, or build multiple release versions to accommodate ITAR export restrictions.
  • Fractal Containment and run-time component linking allow third-party classes to be introduced into the system in the same manner as ZedaSoft's core classes.
  • The peer object model means any top-level entity can be the "ownship", or primary entity of interest. This is in stark contrast to "ownship-centric" legacy simulators built to simulate only one type of entity.
  • The list-based processing model means computer processing power and network bandwidth are the only limitations on scale. There are no explicit limits in the software on the number of components (entities, subsystems, etc.) you can include in a given simulation.
  • Multiple simultaneous remote connections to a given object provide a built-in display repeater capability across the network. Why run video cables around a lab if the existing network can do the job?
  • The Java development platform provides rock-solid execution and fault tolerance; your systems come up and stay up.

Live/Virtual/Constructive Simulation Support

CBA can support Live/Virtual/Constructive (LVC) simulation in any combination. The number of constructive entities that can be supported simultaneously is limited only by the processing power of the simulation host. Built-in DIS v6 support means you can participate in distributed exercises with only a minor amount of configuration to specify how to handle the entity types on the network. Examples of supported constructive entity types include:

  • Tankers (KC-30, KC-135, ...)
  • Threat aircraft and weapons (Su-27, Su-30, MiG-29, AA-10, ...)
  • Blue aircraft and weapons (F-16, F-18, F-22, F-35, AIM-9, MK-82, ...)
  • Air defense systems and weapons (SA-6, SA-8, SA-10, SA-12, ...)
  • Recon assets (Predator, Global Hawk, ...)
  • Navaids (TACAN, ILS, ...)
  • Targets: Various ground vehicles and fixed targets

The Platform Entities section of our site discusses the available human-in-the-loop virtual entities.
