Abstract:

Report developed under SBIR contract for Solicitation Topic N102-116 (Navy). The overall goal of this multi-phase project is to conduct applied Research & Development resulting in significant improvements to current methods used to generate, integrate, and display highly detailed and accurate geo-specific terrain surfaces used in Navy training simulators. The organization of our Phase II team combines RSC's expertise with visualization pipelines and simulator capabilities, with ASU's industry leading research Report developed under SBIR contract for Solicitation Topic N102-116 (Navy). The overall goal for Phase II of this multi-phase project is to conduct applied Research & Development resulting in significant improvements to current methods used to generate, integrate, and display highly detailed and accurate geo-specific terrain surfaces used in Navy training simulators. The organization of our Phase II team combines RSC's expertise with visualization pipelines and simulator capabilities, with ASU's industry leading research in graphics modeling and processing. Our research will specifically address the challenges associated with; integrating, correlating, and fusing multiple types of geospatial data from multiple sources; segmenting, classifying and estimating high-quality, dense geo-specific terrain features; generating and encoding displacement maps, and using a blend of software/hardware technologies to drive real-time rendering in image generators using displacement maps and advanced tessellation technologies. Our team's Phase II technical approach will result in an automated displacement map data generation desktop application and an innovative displacement map rendering software library that is integrated into a demonstration application. The resulting geospatial production and runtime visualization technologies are anticipated to have broad application to simulation and visualization products for the Navy and throughout the DOD and other US government agencies.
