Abstract

In this paper we propose a new simulation platform called SIM, for analyzing parallel and distributed systems. This platform aims to test parallel and distributed architectures and applications. The main characteristics of SIM are flexibility, scalability and expandability. SIM is about five functions: model management, experiment management, distribution management, operation management and node management. To improve the efficiency of project development, new models are designed for lunar orbit rendezvous mission to apply the simulation platform. Finally, a validation process and evaluation tests have been performed to evaluate the SIM platform and lunar orbit rendezvous mission models. The simulation platform and models will lay the foundation for the more validations of autonomy technology in manned lunar landing research.
