Create, execute, control and visualize FLAMES scenarios.
The FLAMES® Operational Requirements Graphical Editor (FORGE™) is the primary application used to create, execute, control, and visualize FLAMES scenarios. With FORGE, every action is accomplished using a powerful yet very friendly graphical user interface, and you can visualize your scenario in 2D and 3D at every step. Whether you’re a simulation user or a simulation developer, you can create the scenarios and generate the results you need easily and quickly.
There is some data that is used in a FLAMES scenario that is imported or created using other FLAMES applications. This data includes terrain data and icon data. With the exception of this data, all data in a FLAMES scenario can be created and edited using FORGE. FLAMES has no scenario or simulation configuration files that must be edited by hand using a text editor.
FORGE does not contain any software that simulates the behavior of real-world systems. All such software resides outside of FORGE in component classes stored in FLAMES plug-ins. When FORGE is started, it dynamically loads the plug-ins that you specify. Several plug-ins are available in the content in the FLAMES Store. You can also build your own plug-ins using the FLAMES Developer. By using FORGE with the desired set of plug-ins, you can simulate almost any system in almost any scenario imaginable.
