Abstract

The newly drafted Military Standard on Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) uses the geocentric coordinates as the world coordinates. However, SIMNET and most of the existing simulators use local topocentric or geodetic coordinates as their world coordinates. This paper establishes the coordinate transformations among the different coordinate systems. The orientation representations in different coordinates are also discussed.
