The modeling and simulation industry has long been plagued by errors in synthetic natural environment representations and services. Terrain correlation issues span a wide range of layers, including database generation, data content, run-time algorithms, and system functional effect. These issues are highly damaging in terms of cost and training impacts. Although multiple attempts have been made to identify and fix correlation issues, each of these attempts has fallen short in terms of functionality or breadth of application. A comprehensive attack on this problem, including a focus on building common architectures and algorithms, will mitigate correlation problems. Team Dignitas solution, referred to as C-nergy, will look beyond the virtual domain to develop a suite of tests that will perform correlation checks within and across the virtual and constructive domains. The solution will be developed with the strategy of eventual expansion into the live domain. Our Phase II efforts will also define a set of principles and standards for the sharing of correlation test results that can grow into a Correlation Analysis for Terrain Representations (CATR) concept.
