Abstract

Military operations in urban areas have increasingly become a key capability for our armed forces. The increased risk of use of the unique nature of large urban environments by hostile forces to their tactical advantage, and related civilian casualties, requires updated procedures, comprehensive training, and constantly evolving capabilities. Current training technologies fail to address the significance of missions in large urban environments due to the extremely high manual effort involved in creating urban scenarios that can stand up to close scrutiny as exhibited in training for missions inside such an urban environment. This proposal is to study the feasibility of leveraging existing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance sources, including multi-spectral correlated sensor data, to allow the efficient and effective creation of much more detailed urban environments that will improve fidelity in simulator based training, resulting in enhanced combat readiness levels for the missions our forces are facing today.
