            Technical Capabilities

•   Ownship Framework provides a distributed platform for establishing
    controllers and viewers and their links to OneSAF entities and their
     – Controllers and Viewers are published to the OneSAF distribution and
       may be connected to an entity from any OneSAF MCT
     – Connections can be established before or after STARTEX
     – Connections may be saved and loaded in scenario files
•   JInput integration provides joystick support to control OneSAF
•   Human In the Loop (HITL) Agents adapt joystick inputs to existing
    OneSAF models
     – Mobility Control of Ground Vehicles, Individual Combatants, UAVs,
       and UGVs
     – Weapon Control on Ground Vehicles and Individual Combatants
•   NVIG Adapter enables the Night Vision Image Generator (NVIG) to
    be an Ownship viewer resource (I.e., provides a first-person, 3D
    view of the OneSAF simulation).
     – Attach to OneSAF entities and, for weapon control, articulated parts.
     – “Roaming” mode provides an unattached viewpoint akin to a Stealth
