AbstractSponsored by the Central Test and Evaluation Investment Program (CTEIP) under the Director of Test and Evaluation (DOT&E), the Foundation Initiative 2010 (FI 2010) project is chartered to enable interoperability among ranges, facilities, and simulations in a timely and cost-efficient manner and to foster reuse of range assets and future software systems. To achieve this vision, FI 2010 has developed and is validating a common architecture called the Test and Training Enabling Architecture (TENA), which provides for real-time software system interoperability using the TENA Middleware, as well as interfaces to existing range assets, C4ISR systems, and simulations. The TENA middleware is being developed using an iterative development process, with functionality being released in four “spirals.” The current software version, Release 3.0, was built upon previous releases and provides some key functionality enhancements to include multicast transport, vector data types and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) multicast communication support. This paper will provide detailed information on the current status of the FI 2010 project, the TENA Middleware Release 3.0, and how the TENA software has been utilized to support test and training events (e.g., Millennium Challenge 02).
