This paper describes the continuation of an earlier initiative to develop a distributed, real- time radar simulator at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. The project consisted of updating the existing simulator code developed during the previous project to eliminate race conditions and to allow it to function in a distributed setting. In addition to identifying and eliminating race conditions, the middleware layer of the simulator was also reconfigured and tested in order to enable distributed communication between multiple machines. The current project required a substantial amount of debugging and testing in order to identify the issues present in the existing simulator and create solutions to address these problems.
