MAK ONE's HLA & DIS Simulation Networking

VR-Link is the glue that holds Synthetic Environments together

The VR-Link toolkit provides an easy way to network simulators and other virtual reality applications. It uses a protocol independent API that abstracts away specific networking details and provides your software with support for industry standard High Level Architecture (HLA) and the Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) protocols.

Introducing VR-Link

Protocol-Independent API

VR-Link saves development dollars by providing a single documented C++ API (with Java and C# bindings) that abstracts away the details of the networking protocols.

One API, Many Protocols

When you write your code to the VR-Link API, your applications become natively compliant with DIS, DIS 7, HLA 1.3, IEEE 1516-2000, and HLA Evolved. For example, most applications that already use VR-Link to support HLA 1.3 can switch to IEEE 1516-2000 or HLA Evolved by merely recompiling.
