The Department of Defense (DoD) High Level Architecture (HLA) for modeling and simulation (M&S) was developed as a means of facilitating interoperability among simulations and promoting reuse of simulations and their components. Although the three HLA specifications together provide the necessary technical foundation for developing distributed, interoperable simulation applications, they do not explicitly define how such applications are developed. In this regard, in order to provide practical
more » ... provide practical guidance to the HLA user community, the Defense Modeling and Simulation Office (DMSO) has sponsored the creation of a process model that describes a structured, common sense approach to HLA federation development. This process model is known as the HLA Federation Development and Execution Process (FEDEP) Model. The primary purpose of this paper is to outline the modifications that have been incorporated in transitioning from FEDEP V1.3 to FEDEP V1.4. This paper will also describe the Concept of Operations (ConOps) for how new releases of the FEDEP are produced, and will identify other related products which may be used in concert with the FEDEP to support the needs of HLA federation developers.
