DARPA ITO Project S3
Scalable Self-Organizing Simulations
Project S3 was successfully completed. Its lasting achievement has been the development
of Scalable Simulation Framework (SSF) and the SSFNet Internet modeling tools.
The SSFNet research and development continues.
Please go to the permanent, actively maintained SSFNet home page:
Scalable Simulation Framework - SSF - is a new public domain standard
for discrete event simulations of large complex systems, with available Java and C++
high-performance scalable parallel implementations.
SSFNet is a collection of SSF-based models
and tools for modeling and simulating Internet protocols
and networks. SSFNet models are open source software distributed under
the GNU General Public License.
Above at right: A multi-domain SSFNet model with over
25,000 highly detailed multiprotocol hosts and routers. SSFNet provides a database-oriented scalable
modeling environment allowing rapid configuration of 100,000-node and larger models, and includes
open-source, validated models of the major Internet protocols.
