Scaling up with MAK Legion: An update on Legion progress

Last month, MAK Technologies released MAK Legion 1.0 — the first commercial version of our new Scalability and Interoperability Framework. I wanted to update everyone on some of the ways we're already using MAK Legion to achieve distributed simulations at unprecedented scale. Many of our early Legion demos, as part of the US Army STE CSE program, w...

Bringing Legion to Virtual SIW!

Connect with us to learn more about Legion!
It's hard to believe that it was 31 years ago, January 1990, when I attended my first "Workshop on the Interoperability of Defense Simulations." Next month the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) will be hosting its 2021 Simulation Innovation Workshop. I am excited to be attending again, this time representing MAK, and working...

Introducing MAK Legion: a next-generation scalability and communication framework delivering millions of entities

Introducing MAK Legion: a next-generation scalability and communication framework delivering millions of entities

I'm excited to introduce the latest innovative technology our team has been developing: MAK Legion  a next-generation scalability and communication framework that can manage and deliver millions of entities in both local and cloud deployment environments.

As you know, MAK has been a trusted and leading provider of simulation interoperability products since our inception 30 years ago. But about two years ago, we asked ourselves an important question, inspired by the needs of the US Army Synthetic Training Environment program: "If we had the chance to re-design DIS or HLA today to meet tomorrow's most aggressive scalability requirements, and to better leverage modern technology such as multi-core machines, high-bandwidth networks, massively-multiplayer gaming paradigms, and cloud services  what would it look like?" Legion represents the answer to that question.

Legion's modern data-oriented implementation, client-server approach to mirroring of state, whole-earth geographic interest management, thread-safe API, simplified ownership transfer, reuse of SISO Enumerations and DIS/RPR data types, and powerful code-generation tools all contribute to Legion's ability to make large numbers of entities easy to manage from any engine or application.
