Visible to the public Networked Control System Wind Tunnel (NCSWT)- An evaluation tool for networked multi-agent systems

Cyber-physical systems, such groups of unmanned aerial vehicles, are often monitored and controlled by networked control systems (NCS). NCS are deployed in many environments subject to realistic, complex network interactions, so evaluation of NCS is crucial to ensuring that NCS function as intended. Given the varied nature of NCS, it is appropriate to use a heterogenous simulation environment to capture the dynamics; however, the design and integration of heterogeneous simulation environments is a complex problem.
