Title: Dynamic Formats in Distributed Simulation Systems
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W91CRB-10-C-0041
Award Amount: $119,927.00


The objective of this topic is to evaluate real-time/runtime construction terrain technologies and determine if these can be directly connected to an enhanced OneSAF constructive simulation through an open API (Open Low Level Extensible Terrain Query API). Doing so would enable OneSAF to support correlated dynamic distributed simulation with run-time published or on-the-fly procedural terrain construction enabled visuals and simulation applications. The Phase I effort will focus on designing and implementing a prototype low level terrain query API that meets the objectives described in the proposal. With assistance from the US Army, these objectives will be sorted by priority, ensuring that our effort will be focused on the areas considered most important to the customer. Prototype API implementation will be developed in Phase I to allow side-by-side comparisons of performance and quality of static terrain OneSAF versus dynamic 3-D terrain enabled OneSAF. The Phase I Option effort will focus on implementing additional prototype API functional calls based on the selected functional calls that provide the most important correlation characteristics in the Phase I evaluation. Beyond the Diamond Visionics Genesis interfaced in phase an additional dynamic terrain systems will be interfaced in Phase II.
