Applying Computer Game Technology to the Display and Visualization of Movement Predictions for Ground Vehicles
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Applied Visions, Inc.(AVI) proposes to leverage the technology of computer games to provide a powerful new method of visualizing the potential movement of ground targets and threats for op-erators of the Tactical Tomahawk Weapon Control System (TTWCS). Recent advancements in the multi-billion dollar game industry have produced game engines that combine powerful visual rendering with sophisticated simulation of real-world physics and vehi-cle dynamics. Our research will be aimed at adapting these game engines to: a) simulate the ability of different target and threat vehicles to move through their local terrain, and b) to generate realistic 3D views of the predicted future movement. Combining AVI's extensive background in 3D visualization and military simulation with game engine experience gained in a recent SBIR for the Army, our Phase I effort will be devoted to defining the key requirements of the system, evaluating representative game engines, and implementing an early prototype to demonstrate the feasibility of the concept. Our Phase II effort will refine the architecture, upgrade the prototype to interface to the TTWCS and participate in field trials.
