Increased capability in natural environment data capture (such as LIDAR) is combining with expanding military requirements for embedded training and automated vehicles to dramatically increase the need for much higher resolution terrain representations and services. Previously, the most complex synthetic natural environment (SNE) representations were focused on correlation with a visual representation, but live, embedded, and automated applications will require correlation with the complexities of the real world. At the same time, embedded applications will have limited storage and processing capacity. As a result, there is a growing need for lightweight, high resolution terrain engines. Dignitas Technologies proposes an approach based upon reuse of relevant technologies combined with industry-leading SNE expertise covering Live, Constructive, and Virtual domains to implement solutions for high-resolution, embedded terrain representations and services. These solutions will be integrated into active Army programs to provide immediate benefit.
