Having a comprehensive construction concept in respect of computer simulation techniques used in simulators — systemsfor the training of security forces using technologically advanced trainers — is an unquestionable requirement in the current eraof technological development. Such concepts provide a basic compendium of knowledge which is particularly useful for those whoare not involved in simulation on a daily basis, but are planning to build similar systems. The authors present a range of solutionsthat may be used in the creation of an integrated simulation system for training security forces. The platform presented, whichis a federation of the simulation systems used by professionals responsible for security, will enable many participants to be trainedin interacting with each other. The solutions developed for the exchange of information, and the interoperability of the platform,ensure that it has the capacity to adapt to future requirements. The developers needed to meet the requirements in termsof quantity of data exchanged between the federation components involved (termed “federates” within the system) which resultfrom the special characteristics of the systems of training for security services. The integrated solutions ranging from small scalesimulation systems for training operators of pyrotechnical robots using a vehicle simulator through to simulation systems fortraining activities at a tactical and strategic level, that enable the simulation and visualization of crowds of many thousands,demanded the expansion of existing standards and an innovative approach to the issue. This study can be regarded as a conceptfor building simulators matching the desired outcomes, especially those that depend on modeling large numbers of independentagencies and forces along with the resources of relevant services. Particular emphasis is given to the practical aspects of creatingintegrated simulation systems and the universality of the study, and this may be of interest not only to academics and thoseworking on various aspects of simulators, but also to practitioners who want rapidly to reach a desired outcome through selectionof the indirect solutions available.
