This paper discusses the lessons learned creating a Command and Control Systems to Simulation Systems Interoperation (C2Sim) interface in OneSAF and using it in a practical exercise. The primary goal of C2Sim is to support data exchange needed for scenario initialization, tasking, and reporting between C2 devices and simulating systems. The prototype OneSAF-C2SIM interface demonstrates each of these capabilities by using a C2 device to interact with OneSAF rather than using a simulation interactor to control the simulation system. The C2Sim interface not only reduces the need for simulation interactors, but also allows military role-players using an actual C2 devices to control simulation systems.
