The FLexible Analysis, Modeling, and Exercise System (FLAMES®) is a family of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software products that provide a framework for composable constructive simulations and interfaces between live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) simulations. FLAMES is ready to use right off the shelf to satisfy many of your modeling and simulation requirements. More importantly, FLAMES’ open, object-oriented architecture gives you the flexibility to create custom simulations that are tailored to your exact requirements and to modify your simulations easily as your requirements change.
FLAMES can be used to support almost any type of simulation requirement, including system design and analysis, test and evaluation, training, and mission rehearsal.
The many benefits of using FLAMES include reduced life-cycle costs, true composability and software reuse, increased productivity, and, ultimately, the success of your simulation-based project. Read more about FLAMES simulation benefits.
How FLAMES Is Different
The heart of FLAMES is a framework for composable simulations that can be reconfigured quickly to support almost any current or future modeling and simulation requirement imaginable. Read more about the FLAMES simulation framework architecture.
Most FLAMES products are grouped into the following product suites:
FLAMES Runtime Suite – A set of ready-to-use applications that allow you to create, execute, and visualize FLAMES scenarios right off the shelf. Licenses to the Runtime Suite are available at no cost!
FLAMES Development Suite – All you need to modify or expand the capabilities of the Runtime Suite to satisfy your specific modeling and simulation requirements.
