A system of systems (SoS) simulation framework using discrete event system specification (DEVS) and data encoded with Extensible Markup Language (XML) tags is presented to support agent-in-the-loop (AIL) simulations for large, complex, and distributed systems. AIL simulations provide a necessary step in maintaining model continuity methods to achie...
Conference Paper
This paper extends an XML based system of systems simulation framework using DEVS to support hardware-in-the-loop simulations for SoS. A system of systems approach enables the simulation and analysis of multiple complex, independent, and cooperative systems by concentrating on the data transferred among systems. This paper wraps information exchang...
Conference Paper
In a system of systems (SoS) consisting of heterogeneous independently operable systems, successfully sending, receiving, and understanding data is necessary to achieve interoperation among the systems. Extensible Markup Language (XML) is applied to wrap the data in a way that is commonly understood in the SoS while the asynchronous nature of the i...
Conference Paper
Simulations play an important role in complex systems development. In a System of Systems (SoS) consisting of heterogeneous independent systems (as is the case with cooperative robotics, for example), effective communication among the systems is essential. This paper extends the application of Extensible Markup Language (XML) as a method of wrappin...

Original XML based System of Systems architecture as name and description, and standard tree structure allow individual systems to correctly interpret data. There have been multi-agent applications that have used the XMLbased SoS framework directly or with slight modifications as seen in [9], [10], [11], [12], [13], [14]. In [9], [10], [14], the framework is used without modification, in [11], [12], they modify the XML tags due to hardware constraints, and in [13] the framework is modified to make use of XML attributes. ...
... Hosking [68] developed a system of systems (SoS) simulation framework using discrete event system specification (DEVS) and data encoded with Extensible Markup Language (XML) tags to support agentin-the-loop (AIL) simulations for large, complex, and distributed systems. A system of systems approach enables the simulation and analysis of these independent and cooperative systems by concentrating on the data transferred among systems instead of determining global state spaces. ...

... Thus, many DEVS simulation environments aim at the definition of XML-based DEVS model description and their corresponding interpretation in different programming languages. 26,28,29,35,36 An XML data encapsulation was accomplished by Hosking and Sahin, 35 within the DEVS environment, as a unifying communication method among the entities in any Systems-of-Systems (SoS) architecture. In the study by Mittal et al., 36 the problem of model interoperability was addressed, introducing DEVSML. ...
