Abstract
During the last several years advances in PC and Graphics computational power has been nothing short of phenomenal. Diamond Visionics LLC has been developing software and hardware products to take advantage of the technology advances. In this Phase Iproposal DVC has described features and tools that are essential for military visual simulation that can be leveraged from the entertainment industry. The study proposal includes a thorough market survey that will make recommendations based on current andfuture needs and emerging technology. Features proposed include rigorous scene management to ensure deterministic image update rates, screen fill optimization in dynamic synthetic environments and a video processor that provides essential video controltechniques. The Phase I option will provide an advanced technology demonstration incorporating all the features and approaches described in this proposal. This proof of principal demonstration will provide multi-channel real-time simulation illustratingthese features and emulation of hardware video control techniques. For Phase II DVC will implement and integrate the approaches from Phase I with the objective of providing a well proven product with capabilities for a complex military simulationapplication in the military training arena.The primary benefit will be a lower cost per channel image generation product with features not currently available in today's
