Abstract

RTI(Run-Time Infrastructure) provides services for HLA-based distributed simulation, and decides to a great extent the simulation scalability and efficiency. Distributed RTI has good scalability, but its time cost is always higher because of the architecture complexity. BH RTI is based on a distributed RTI architecture. Some techniques are used to overcome the problem of time cost. LoI-based data delivery algorithms are presented to speed up data delivery. PDU(protocol data unit)-function registry and RTI process model are designed to promote the efficiency of data packet processing. Experiment results illustrated that distributed BH RTI depressed the negative influence of architecture complexity and achieved a relatively lower time cost.
