ZedaSoft® issued Patent for "A Container-based Architecture for Simulation of Entities in a Time Domain"

(Fort Worth, Texas – April 7, 2009) ZedaSoft, Inc. a simulation and visualization software company announces the issuance of a patent for "Container-based Architecture for Simulation of Entities in a Time Domain" (U.S. patent 7,516,052) to the company by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The patent design is central to ZedaSoft’s CBA® simulation software product which provides a modular object-oriented Java framework for developing simulation systems. This design discards the historical "cockpit/ownship-centric" design philosophies in favor of a design where all participants in the simulation, including the ownship are peers, thus blurring the lines between constructive and virtual simulation entities. The CBA® simulation software is extensible by ZedaSoft’s customers and is used by most to integrate diverse simulation models under a single simulation executive. Benefits include:

  • Ability for any participant to act as the ownship;
  • Ability for switching out participants and models of varying fidelities;
  • Ability to remotely connect to and interact with any simulation participant with an interface;
  • Multiple simultaneous remote connections to any simulation participant, resulting in a built-in display repeater capability.

The Simulation Container® has been extended to include interfaces to the most popular visual scene image generators, input/output hardware, human interface systems and military standard multiplex hardware. CBA® simulation software has been used to deliver various simulation and visualization solutions to large defense customers including Lockheed Martin, The Boeing Company, BAE Systems, Elbit Systems of America and various US government customers. "The issuance of this patent reinforces our customers’ investment in CBA® simulation software and our delivered platform solutions by validating its unique simulation capabilities" said, G.W. Estep, president of ZedaSoft, Inc.
