The Combat Trauma Patient Simulation (CTPS) is a dual purpose training and analysis simulation system that provides an "end-to-end" simulation of the military medical treatment process for combat trauma injuries from the time of occurrence through initial treatment at the field hospital. CTPS was built by integrating a set of existing commercial and military simulations, each specialized for a different part of the process. None of the integrated simulators was initially interoperable, or even designed to be interoperable, with the others. The integration was achieved using the High Level Architecture (HLA), together with interface modules for each of the simulators. The HLA ownership transfer services were central to the system's design.
