|Source code for the SITH is now available in the new version 0.7!
The SITH is a development, diagnostic, and monitoring tool to assist in the creation and integration of HLA federations. An HLA federation is a collection of simulations working together through the DoD High Level Architecture (HLA) for Simulation Interoperability version 1.3. The SITH provides services such as honest broker, stand-in federate, data verifier, and performance tester.
The SITH was developed originally to support the integration and testing of the DoD Joint Simulation System but has found application in a variety of HLA federations supporting multiple federation object models and Runtime Infrastructure (RTI) implementations.
The SITH's integration activities include:
- Ensuring the proper encoding of data
- Federate emulation
- Data validation and correlation
- Collection of performance metrics
The SITH software itself is distributed as GOTS software as a Microsoft Windows or UNIX install package.
