A Tcl Binding for HLA/RTI

Author: William H. Duquette


HLA/RTI is a "High Level Architecture" with accompanying "Run-Time Infrastructure" designed by the U.S. Department of Defense to support the creation of networks (called federations) of cooperating simulation applications (called federates). The RTI software layer provides basic inter-task messaging, as well as management of simulated time across federates. RTI APIs are commercially available for C++ and Java. The paper presents two Tcl APIs, a low-level binding to the C++ API which adheres to HLA/RTI naming conventions, and a higher-level API built on top of it which is intended for actual use. The paper includes an introduction to HLA/RTI, but the main focus is on the design and implementation of the two APIs, which were developed as part of an HLA/RTI federate called the Joint Non-kinetic Effects Model (JNEM).
