UNCLASSIFIED

A more thorough comparison of the RPR2(v19.9) enumerations against SISO-REF-010(IST-CF-02 2002).
Significant differences
================
CamouflageEnum32
This enumeration map loosely to the SISO-REF-010 Camouflage and Paint Scheme bits of Platform and Life Form Appearance bitfield.

SpreadSpectrumEnum16
This enumeration does NOT map onto the SISO-REF-010 Spread Spectrum boolean array. DIS provides individual boolean fields for Frequency Hopping, Pseduo-noise, and Time Hopping, whereas RPR2 enumerates the name of the waveform.

JTIDS_MIDS_SpectrumType

 
Both CamouflageEnum32 and SpreadSpectrumEnum16 should be added to SISO-REF-010 as RPR enumerations. The new SISO-REF-010 document structure is going to break out "standard agnostic enumerations" from those specific to DIS and RPR.
 
 
Design differences
=============
 
MinefieldSensorTypeEnum32
RPR2 combines the SISO-REF-010 Minefield Sensor Type 'Category' and 'Subcategory' enumerations into one enumeration.
 
PropulsionPlantEnum8
RPR2 combines the SISO-REF-010 Propulsion Plant 'Configuration' and 'Hull mounted marker' bit-fields into one enumeration.
 
As it has been mentioned before, these cannot be changed without breaking buffer compatibility.

 
Minor differences
============
 
AcknowledgementProtocolEnum8
RPR2 adds 3='Standard'. This does not exist in SISO-REF-010, and cannot be found in the GRIM.
 
ArticulatedPartsTypeEnum32
RPR2 adds 0='Other'. This does not exist in SISO-REF-010.
 
EnvironmentDataSampleTypeEnum16 and EnvironmentModelTypeEnum8
RPR2 adds 0='Unknown' for both. These do not exist in SISO-REF-010.
 
MarkingEncodingEnum8
RPR2 describes 0='Other', whereas SISO-REF-010 describes it as 'Unused'.
 
StationEnum32
RPR2 is missing values 1-511 'Sequential IDs for model-specific stations'.
RPR2 describes 906='Other Attached Parts', whereas SISO-REF-010 describes the range 906-1023 as 'Other Attached Parts'.
Since the OMT does not support range enumerations, its questionable whether this is worth fixing.
