XDV – The Extensible Modeling and
Simulation Framework (XMSF)
Distributive Continuous Experimentation
Environment (DCEE) Viewer
DCEE has established a framework of common
terminology for the information to be exchanged
between components.
The DCEE concept is open for extensions to
emerging solutions. Use of XML, standardized
tag-sets, web services, and web technology is
part of the general concept of DCEE.
The integration of DCEE and XMSF seems to be
an obvious step.

Objective of XDV
XDV is intended to proof the feasibility of the
concept for a web-based, low-cost viewer using
open web-technology.
Every eligible stakeholder interested in observing
execution of the ongoing experiment can log into
the federation and use the viewer software to
follow the actual experiment.
The necessary software will be executed on a
commercial off-the-shelf PC.

Components of the proposed
XDV prototype
   (A) Web-enabled RTI services
 • (B) Entity based Viewer Component
      • 3D representations
      • based on the NPS Scenario Authoring and
        Visualization for Advanced Graphical
        Environments (SAVAGE)

   (C) Unit based Viewer Component
         2D/3D representations
         similar to the Naval Visualization Program (NVP)
