Simulation based education and training, especially wargame simulations, are being used widely in the field of defense modeling and in simulation communities. In order to efficiently train students and trainees, the wargame simulations must have both high performance and high fidelity. In this paper, we discuss design and implementation issues for a prototype of a parallel and distributed wargame simulation system. This wargame simulation system is based on High Level Architecture (HLA) and employs some optimization to achieve both high performance and high fidelity in the simulation system. The results show that the proposed optimization method is effective when optimization is applied to 93.5% or less of the moving objects (PFs) within the range of detection (RofD) of both the red and blue teams. Specifically, when each team has 1000 PFs we found that if the percentage of PFs within RofD is less than 50% for both teams, our method is over two times better than for the situation where there is no optimization.
