Enhanced CAX Architecture, Design and Methodology – SPHINX


Computer-Assisted Exercises (CAXs) have existed for some years. They are either distributed where participants remain in their home bases and are linked by high capacity communications or non-distributed where all those taking part are collocated. The use of distributed CAXs has grown significantly for the following reasons: a) Operational complexity: multi-national and joint level training needed; b) To reduce costs of exercises by increasing distributed solutions which enable troops to remain within their own barracks; c) Technical advances have enabled far more effective simulation systems; and d) Simulation interoperability is there. To meet with this operational demand, twenty countries and 7 NATO bodies formed a working group also nicknamed SPHINX and delivered several NMSG reference documents: • AMSP-03: M&S standard profile for NATO and multi-national computer exercises with distributed simulation; • AMSP-04: NETN Federation Architecture and FOM Design; • AMSP-05: Guideline for non-CAX experts; and • The SPHINX conceptual model describing a Computer-Assisted eXercise (CAX).
