Abstract

Hybrid agent-based simulation is required to provide a mechanism for analyzing large-scale complex systems, such as the National Airspace System (NAS). The dynamic behavior of many complex systems is, in general, hybrid in nature and can be best described by a combination of discrete-event and continuous-time models, and their interactions. Correspondingly, hybrid agent-based simulation capable of incorporating different types of models provides an accurate means of evaluating the reliability and performance of complex systems. However, in order to serve as a design and analysis tool, a number of issues must be addressed. This paper outlines issues in the development of hybrid agent-based simulation architectures capable of providing a scaleable mechanism for simulating the NAS. In particular, an object-oriented approach is described. In addition, methods of improving computational efficiency of updating the simulation are described and compared.
